    hi mate im from your neck of the woods now live in norfolk, welcome the engines are bench run in but take it easy for first 500 keep it below 3500rpm then 4500rpm for next 500 just to make sure thats my advice, then oil change. its not written in stone and im sure that other people may no agrea but thats what i think protech you investment.

      I drove mine well not worrying about rev limits (ie not going over 3500 untill 500) if i felt like a play i had a bit of a play from the start just didnt go over the top

      Car is performing great got 243.4 BHP on a dyno the other day changed oil at 1300 and no ill issues at all well pleased

        the harder you run them in the better but make sure you get the engine upto temp first.

        Here's how you check the temp.

        Once your getting ready to stop and turn off make sure its cooled down enoght as well.

        at least half a mile before drive slow and try not to boost it if you can.

                            I've got a Vodaphone 3G Datacard for my Laptop. Just a shame I can't use battery because it's a Dell. Been waiting 5 weeks for the replacement to come through - joy. Will risk the battey for BTCC though, so if anyone wants they are welcome to use my laptop as company pays for the card -
