GC8 no more! Just took delivery of a San Remo Red Wagon! Come on 500 miles! Finally legitimized. Now the search for performance parts renews.

Wagon motors are less potent. Break in ='s half the time.

Thats the word from the dealer. If you guys know different I'd sure like to know. Less potent? You mean like after a night of drinking Murphy's as opposed to Guinnes: slightly different smell but just as stinky!

never ever ever listen to the dealer. Read your owner's manual. You'll see that it's 1,000.

Yeah, but they're stronger, you don't hear of wagon engines or trannies disintergrating.

that's because they're not capable of the power sedans are

My dealter told me to beat the thing out of the lot. I was definatly not hearing it. I took it easy for 1000 miles. My dealer said they all get beat during testing before they go to the showroom floor.


I hope not. I got my car with 30miles. I hope they weren't "drop the clutch at 6000rpm type of miles."

Where exactly does this carbon build up. I drive my car at pretty low rpms, like 2000rpm in 4th gear. will this cause the carbon build up. I have uppipe+tbe so it doesn't bog anymore.
