So recently done an oil change, Engine has clocked over 5100 miles since I build the engine for it, Everything looked good, As we have a magnetic Oil Sump Plug, there was nothing at all on the magnet so that suggests no metal fragments at all, This confirms the engine has now ran in.
So a new Bosch Oil Filter an Castrol Edge 5w30 Fully Synthetic oil in her.
Had a small look in at the pistons and they look clean. Engine is running bloody sweet.
Fiona moaned about fuel economy (It is high performance
), Today we went out, £15 in the tank done about 60 miles, and still well over quarter of a tank...I kind of had to tell her to change gear around 2500RPM and not 4000RPM
Engine has some power though, Checked all AFR's today on a wee power run, AFR's run around 14.5:1 on light cruising throttle, 12.5:1 on Wide Open Throttle and High RPM, so my base map is pretty spot on.
