    another quick question re running in

    sorry. this topic must be done to death.

    If u guys hv read my post. I hv done 2000km on my 2.7L already
    Now I often rev to 5500 rpm once engine is fully warmed up.

    my question is: Can I safely rev to the red-line after 2000km???

    Re: another quick question re running in

    RTFM.

    FM says 3000km. But it's up to you really. I'd wear some protective gloves and eye goggles, just in case.

    Don't forget its mid engined - it's your ar$e thats going to get shrapneled if something gives!

    Re: another quick question re running in

    if reving to the redline with 2000km were a big deal, the little chips they put in the engine would stop you.

    They can't do that without opening the flood gates to loads of law suits.
    "Mid way through my overtake, the engine cut power, so I caused a huge accident"

    Airbus airshow crash anyone?

    I think people have to be responsible for their own actions.

    There is a growing trend for people to lose the ability to assess risk, because they assume that if it was that dangerous, someone would have made it impossible to do.

    And can you get Kevlar pants?

    Firstly, we wouldnt be here if we all read the FM!
    thats what forums like this are for.

    We will all be a bunch of straight thinking nerds if all we do is to follow THE F*** MANUAL

    how boring.

    Re: another quick question re running in

    Manuals and the instructions and recommendations therein are written for very good reasons. It would not be right to second guess a highly respected manufacturer like Porsche, particularly when it comes to such things as running in guidelines. In my car I adhered to it absolutely to the letter.

    Look after the machinery, and it will look after you.
