    The best BREAK-IN procedure for the GT86

    I came across this video in Youtube, probably this is the best thing to do after you drive it off from the dealer.

    When you reach 1000kms, make sure you wash your car and take it back to the dealer and demand an oil change.

    Isn't that what you did, and now your engine needs to be rebuilt?

    Ha! I probably did much worse than that. I was banging hundreds of laps at the track before my first oil change. And no, my engine is fine fortunately. I had a couple of months downtime due to the: clutch, ignition coils, broken engine mounts, bushings, OS Giken diff, and tyres. As a matter of fact, my GT86 is back on the road for a couple of weeks now. If you see a white GT86 with blaring Super Yellow Halogens at the Nashos, or the Old Pacific Highway at midnight, that's probably me... The only reason why I had the car off the road for quite sometime was due to the OS Giken diff parts did not come quick enough.

    I've now accumulated 56,000kms on the clock. My FA20 is still purring like a kitten. No ticking, no rev hunting, no misfires or shakes, no clacking, no crickets, and no issues worth noting.. How I wish the FA20 failed now, it should be fun rebuilding the damn thing.. and there are a few interesting engine swaps out there.. changing the damn plugs alone will give you the shaits... . I am going to hit the track soon as I am going to test a diff cooler.
