I had my forged motor installed 4 months ago and I have driven 2k miles since. I have now had to add my 3rd quart of mobile 1. I understand thats it normal to have to add more oil after a rebuild but is 3 quarts normal in 2k miles?
I went through a lot of oil myself. I am almost to 3300 miles on mine and the missing oil has greatly subsided
I don't think you're suppossed to use synthetic oil during the break-in period. When I had ordered a PWR 426, Andy told me to use traditional oil for the first 3000-5000 miles.....then switch to synthetic.
Andy told me the same thing. Break in oil for 300 miles and then 3000 miles on regular oil and then whatever you want afterward.
