The technicians perform a "PDI" to every single Subaru that involves switching a fuse or two around to put the ECU into it's normal mode and disable the check engine light.

Nothing to see here in that video really. Dude should be fired, but doubtful that any significant wear was put on that motor with the ecu set like that and only reving in nuetral to 6500 twice. Just my .02

When I went through SIA, someone in the group asked the engine assembly manager what the break-in period was. He basically said none. He said once the engines are assembled, they are put on a dyno and rev'd up to near redline for several minutes. Your engine has been run through even before it's put in your car guys.

They all are. They have the ever living **** beat out of the motors before your fingers ever get to touch the steering wheel. This is any manufacturer anywhere. They need to verify that the motor they are sending out is in fact a good motor and isn't going to fail the first time you hit redline.

The M3 comes with an active rev limiter. It gradually raises the Red line as the car warms up.

"M3, V8, beast"
"Frozen Black Cuh"
"I can count to potato"

omg I wonder if this guy knows nasioc is stalking him? haha

I get it that engines are redlined at factory etc but it is still very disrespectful when someone other than the owner or an engineer/factory test worker does it.

You do realise that this happens on basically any car at the dealership during test drives, employees/techs driving the car or the service workers beating the hell out of it when u drop it off for service? Not shocked. People are douchebags

I ran into this same clip a couple months ago, and at the time I thought he was the proud owner of that new STI and wanted to share it with us as soon as he could. Son of a bitch...

The end
