Well, I went down yesterday morning to pick up a new A6 block and a Y8 head from d16z6rex. Borrowed stef's still stock HF, and got great mileage there and back (54.3 mpg on the mass pike!). Got back last night, pulled the motor and started getting the new one ready to go in, cleaning it up and honing, etc etc. Cyl 1 on the old one snapped a rod, it looks like the wrist pin seized and then the rod snapped, there is nothing left in the plane of the rest of the rod, still on the crank and spinning freely. Lots of broken metal, lost of crying. Anyway, on my way back from RI, a friend got me a P28 and a Y8 dizzy from the local yard, and I ended up getting the integra pistons, but I had to pull them. That took the longest, I finally got them out, damn near mint looking pm7's. It took 3 hours to get the damn oil pan off, I'm home now taking a quick shower and getting some food, updates will come later, I'm hoping to be ready for autocross today, it's going to be close.

damn your askin for it, autocrossing on a fresh build... hope it all goes well.
Best way to break it in really.
If the build is good and survives the first several minutes of abuse then you're golden! (The rings seat much better that way too!)

I was always under the impression you should never run a motor past 3000RPMs for the first 500 miles.

Only one engine have I heard of an "aggressive" break-in period... a 944 turbo build my buddy ordered. That's procedure was bring it to 2000, let it down to idle, bring it to 3000, drop to idle, 4, idle, 5, idle, done.
