Perhaps because it's no longer broken?

I was wondering why that might be

Does that clarify?

A appreciate the concern however.

Would it be better in your opinion to tune a car that has not been properly broken in yet? That seems a hair more risky
It would be much less risky to get a proper tune for the car's mods and just drive it gently for ~200 miles.

A 1500-mile break-in for an engine with factory tolerances is insanity. You're creating an engine that will guzzle oil.

Can you elaborate, I was told 1500 by my friend who is a tech to be safe. And it just has the pipe on it now, the only tunes I would have available to me is a COBB Stage 2 OTS map

By babying the engine too much during break in, especially with factory tolerances, you will not seat the rings as well, making it more damage-prone down the road, and the engine will consume much more oil than it might if you were to break it in more aggressively. Such is not to say that you should beat the ***** out of it from day one, but not to baby it for 1500 miles.

I see so you're recommending a taper

Don't be a jackass, miles.

At this point the motor should be fine. definitely open it up, get it tuned and give it boost.

It was not run at full throttle within the first 20 minutes of run time, it will never be a strong engine.

I did a "hard" break in on my motor. Brand new start up and brought to operating temp at idle. Shut it down... changed oil.. sae 30. Drove wot for the first 4 gears then left it in gear and came to a stop ( high.. HIGH vaccum).. until engine stalls. This is the way I break in all my motorcross engines... I have 160psi compression across the board with O..ZERO oil consumption. 35k later... she is flawless. Just my way... but there is a lot of merit to a HARD break in...its all about seating those rings as soon as possible. Otherwise your cross hatch with wear your rings down and there is no way to come back from that.

Currently at 310whp and beat on it every day....
