hi guys,

i'm new in here and i'd like to break-in my engine (zx-12) with WOT method, but i don't know how i can exactly do that. do you know exact steps for that method? i don't have any bench, so i have to break in on the parking lot.

i also read 710's black book. it contains good information about that procedure, but i have some questions, for example in first tank, what if the car goes fast on the parking lot when i pull the trigger? i asked that because i don't have really big parking lot for speedy onroads thanks.

I don't know what the WOT method is but here is a link for a method I have used.

http://www.rbmods.net/enginetempering.php

In the Universal RB Concept instructions is a pretty comprehensive .pdf download that is worth having for reference.

Unless you have the spare cash for new engines when they go, I'd keep in mind 'engine life' during breaking in.

Try Josh Cyrul's site for the WOT method description. There are other useful tips on his website also regarding how to clean and maintain engines as well.

Josh Cyrul's method is an awsome method to use......best break in procedure i have ever gone through.........very reliable.......just one thing that would make it easier is to buy the serpent break in stand and your set.......breaking in a motor for me is a peice of cake now

IMHO the breakin stand is not worth it. You should breakin the motor with it mounted in the car. I have used the same method as Josh and if you take your time to understand what your engine is doing and have faith in your ability it will produce a fast and reliable engine.

If I had a breakin stand I would probably use it as well. I just don't think it is a absolute necessity. Please let us know how you go with the stand as I may be persuaded to buy one.
