then just go by feel.you can see when an engine is breaking in as it gets richer each tank as the piston/liner fit expands and breaks itself in, when this occurs every tank, lean it just a fraction then run it like this for the rest of the tank.
do you do this straight without any engine shut-off in between tanks?

no shut the engine off between each tank and let it cool down completely, then when you go to restart the engine heat it up with a hairdryer as much as you can, usually 2 minutes is enough, the chassis should feel quite warm. You can heat up an engine with a hairdryer up to 80 degrees so if you have a temp gun aim for 80 degrees before you crank it over.

i am up to my 9th tank. by the 7th tank i leaned it out enough for it to start shifting. use foams that are about 61cm's not too small. my engine is currently at about 100 degrees. I am using tornado fuel with 3% extra castor oil. I feel the tornado doesn't have enough oil in it for break in. current tornado mix has 8.6% oil, not sure what proportion of this is castor and synth though, still not enough in my opinion, not when Runnertime (best fuel on the market) uses a total of 12%

2015 gets a bit better mileage, 2052 has a bit more top end.

First the 3xxx pipes suck. Don't use them.

Second, they are reocommended by NovaRossi to be used with FLASH

Third, by experience, I personally have a Cordoba, and tried them.

If you find any other pipes that are good, plz share. You can try JP and Max Power. But, they are similar to nova.

guys

When purchasing the new engine, how many of you seal the engine prior to breaking in the engine.

The reason I ask is that there is always a thread in different forums advising that the motor, whether it be new of used should be sealed to ease the issue of tuning, performance and temperature.

Thanks

i've never needed to do this. if you need to seal an engine that means there is issues with fit and finish and the o rings
