    Break in period is over!

    Just went over 1k miles this weekend and was opening it up a little bit in the rex. Then I noticed my avg mpg going down after a few spirited freeway on-ramps. Darn those gauges, I liked being oblivious!

    I just passed 950 on mine. I figure close enough. Actually, I was getting an itchy right foot at around 900. It was even harder because I gave it a stage 1 tune at around 550.

    I turn the trip computer off too. I don't want to know.

    This weekend: 1st oil change!

    Hehe, haven't quite done that yet, but I have been pleasantly surprised how well this thing pulls in 5th gear, uphill even.
