How do you know if break is done??? take a compression test... if your engine shows factory compression then break in is complete... if your engine shows less than factory compression then more break in is require... how long you take is up to you...

Why are tobacco companies fighting so hard to keep ingredient labels off their product? Massachusetts tried to get a list back in 1997. We know about "pink slime" in mcnuggets because food comes under a different jurisdiction.
