I have a little different recipe for break-in, but thanks for a tip ;)

I use Millers CRO 10w-40 oil for 800-1000km, with use of all rpm, no overhaul the engine, without riding on WOT - just normal use with a lot of breaking by engine with tranny.
This method never disapoint me during build of couples engine. Everytine compresion is high and no problems with oil consumption - including units built with forged internals.

Living example - car of my wife:

I used cheap mineral diesel oil for my break in, as I needed my rings to bed in, I done first oil change at 50 miles, then 100 miles, then every 300 miles after, then at the 1000 mark, i put in Castrol Edge 5w30. Engine bedded in well.

Anytime, I plan on having a nice black N16 as a daily hopefully next year, I do want to consider making a 1.5 Turbo.

QG engines are not good base even for soft turbo :/ There was some articles about getting turbo a QG18 and boosting more than 0,6 bar it's a risky. Stock head also doesn't flow as good as SR, engine is also oversquared type (longer stroke than bore), so it's make a lot of torque on bottom and mid but don't have good numbers on the top. In QG15 the weakest point is tranny, it's not holding well even the stock power. Before I swap to SR I many times consider building forged QG. The true is that: when you squeeze all juice from QG, in SR it's just beginning of play. Weakest point of QG are pistons. Rods are enough strong, they are like GA16 - so strong enough. QG engines hurt on oil starvation - oil rings are moved so much to the top of pistons and material of rings is badly designed. It's a matter of time that piston rings will get fried-stack and ovalize.
In N16 FL, there are also minor changes in elctrical loom. They use CAN rail for communication. Last bad thing is returnless fuel system - when you want to boost you need much more bigger injectors (about 30% bigger than in retur system), or make it returnless.
