yep supposedly the only thing "up" from our stocker is the Auto Verdi 3 stage billet pump. I don't think its necessary and use stock 997 pump and never saw oil pressure dip. steady 100psi at WOT.

We need to find Rix, and strap him to his desk chair until such time as he does another post.

This is entirely too long.

Need more !

Mark- IIVVX is correct.

I believe the break in included 2 bar wot pulls slightly exceeding the speed limit.

The prior to 121 break in 'Hans can comment on.

Joe Gibbs Racing Engine Break-in oil 15w50. Procedure was light load pulls on the dyno to seat rings. This was actually done without the Y-pipe so I can confirm there was no boost.
