I’m on my 4th tank of fuel with the 2.5.
The temps during brake in have been as follows.

1st Tank. Factory settings 100-130 while driving high idle lazy 8s 150-165 at 1-2 minutes idle.

2nd tank about the same but a bit smoother and the idle is kicking up a bit.

3rd tank. 130-140 at 1/4th throttle doing lazy 8s 160-170 at idle for 1-2 min. and the idle has gotten out of hand.

4th tank, reduced the idle speed, running up to ½ -2/3rds throttle for 1-2 seconds using smooth trigger action. Temps are 125-140, and 160-170 at idle. It shifted into 2nd gear.

5th tank to come.

I have not yet made any HSN or LSN adjustments.
This engine does heat up at idle using the factory settings.

It seems much stronger than the one I drove the other day at the track.
Hmm?

Probably because you are breaking it in the RIGHT way. Most dont.
