Pre-Break in Nova Rossi engines are already broken in, all you need to do is Tune it and race it!

Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to run a tank or two through it on the track with a bit of a rich setting.

When you get the Nova Rossi Pre-Broken in engines, the piston already have a mild brown in color, indicating that it is already broken in.

I actually purchased 1 flash tuned pre run for the the actual day of qualifying due to having issues with my other engines.
All I can say it is well worth it
All I did was run a tank on the bench since it was cold it idled perfect went on to the track put a tune on it and ran my qualifiers

Thanks to distributor for being trackside or it would of been a bad week for me

do they replace the bearing and rod when the factory breaks them in? or do these items need to be changed as per normal after 4-5L?

Pre break in really worth the extra money. Save you time and have fun right away.
