Re: Bad-Ass Engines
Be careful when anyone advises dyno-testing a new engine.
It is good to dyno tune a new engine, and it is good to run a new engine on a dyno at moderate and varied rpm... but it is NOT good to test the max horsepower.
All engines need to be bedded in (run in)as all moving parts need to be bedded in to make good contact (blue printing).
This is best done over at least 1,000 miles of steady running for all the moving parts, even brakes etc.
We can be victims when it comes to sharp practice or ignorance on engines.
