Engine break-in procedure
Please use the following Break-in Procedure to ensure optimum performance of your replacement Rev6 product.
- Use fuel with an octane of 87 or higher.
- Oil must be high in Zinc and Phosphorus! Do not use any full synthetic oils for the first 25 hours of run time.
- Brands that work well:
- Royal Purple
- Comp Cams Break-In Oil
- Lucas Hot Rod Oil

- Pull a variation of light and heavy loads during Break-In.
- Change Engine oil and filter after the first 5 hours of operation.
- Change oil after the Break-In period at 25 hours. (At this point you can switch back over to any recommended full synthetic oils.
