there had been a lot of debate on running in mileage of the 8, seems from your posting that u are going to go all the way after 1000km, did u read anywhere that it is ok to do that?? me wan to try 8500rpm as well but do not want to hurt the engine in any way.

Originally posted by Spyder766 wow, 6500, thats alot man, wat is your km now, i was planning to hit 4000 after i hit 1000km and 5000 after i hit 2000km
u guys are making me change my plans man!!
I've done about 850km so far. IMO, we shouldn't baby the car too much as i feel this will result in the engine being tighter and less willing to rev in the long run. Seemed to have worked pretty well on my previous cars. Hope it works for rotaries too!
1000 rpm increase with every 1000 km may be babying it a bit too much! :D Imagine, you gotta wait till 6000km before you can hit redline!
Decided to use this thread for oil as more appropriate! Anyhow, Spyder, $49.90 is pretty cheap for the rotary oil!
I'm thinking of getting someone, like our PI perhaps or through their workshop, to help bring in a few cans. Maybe can do a group buy or something and see if we can get some discounts that way. Are you guys keen?
Just visited AutoBac, have not been there for a long time, in my memory, I thought there were alot of engine oil available there, especially those imported japanese engine oil. But to no avail. First of all, they have reduce their variety of oils and most oil are of synthetic.
Have not check with my PI about the oil they are gonna use yet, but just in case, they are not going to use 5w-20(or close) Noy-Syn, might be a good idea to do a group buy of the origial Mazda dino oil. Hi Spyder, would you be able to hook that up. But of course we can do all this after a discussion with the Japanese Engineer, thanks to 2F2F's contact.
