Roger, how many times are we going to keep going round in circles? You are a laughing stock on every forum you’ve besmirched and on FB too. I got a message just this week about how you’d offered somebody who doesn’t even own a 944 an unsolicited copy of your “£30k build spreadsheet”. 
I’d rather you didn’t comment on this thread again please. I wish you all the best with your build and your racing career, may it be long, relatively uneventful, and ultimately keep you busy.

Well done David, happy days ahead...not sure what your specific ring bed-in procedure is? but what Roger said is sound advice. You need heavy load, on and off the throttle and keep below 4k rpm. No long motorway driving at constant speeds for a few thousand miles at least. Change the oil within 1k miles, IIRC I changed mine at 500 miles and changed again before going to fully sythetic later.. can't remember how much later but I would guess it's in my build log.
 
have fun and enjoy...:)

Thanks Pete, got some specifics around maximising cylinder pressure for 10 or so cycles and will then take the engine builder’s route up to the Scottish Border on the country roads, rev limit has already been set to 4K. I’m running Miller’s CRO running in oil, when I get back that will be changed. Then some more running around before a change for the summer and hopefully a track day or two.

As I was back at work today I had to pay somebody else to drive my car 
 
Upshot is that the cylinder rings are now broken in, car is sat on the ramp while the oil drains out overnight - then a fresh filter and fill before it‘s off for MOT. Will run it in for another 500+ miles when Boris allows before another oil change for the good stuff and then upping the boost/rev limit.  A slight coolant leak from one of the hoses was found and remedied by a new jubilee clip - given the myriad of cooling hoses on the Twbo I’m surprised it was only 1!!!
 
Back into the body shop on the 1st of March for a couple of bits that got missed/I wasn’t totally happy with.

Thank you Maurice, I appreciate the sentiment. It’s important to remember the things that bind us together despite the airtime given to those things that try to drive division between us.

It’s called humility, you should try it sometime.
