Make sure never to use synthetic until all the micro abbrasive surface has worn of.

Depending on what the engine is? Would depend on whether synthetic should be used. I personally wouldn't use synthetic in a cleveland again. $60 for 4 or maybe 5lt and I didn't even get 1000k's use from it. The cleveland's seal design doesn't hold oil that thin in :(

It'd stay in if all mating surfaces were sealed with silicone but I'm not keen on too much silicone. I've seen what it does when it goes wrong. The last thing you need is loose silicone covering the oil pickup. The best one I saw was a 350 chev. May as well have siliconed up the oil pick up. :D

Yeah i'm the same, although i do use a high grade silicone on the ends of the intake instead of gaskets on the Clevo, the "Ultra" sensor safe silicones are excellent, can't take it off with a grinder and doesn't break down with oil and even fuel for that matter.

The VS 5.0 were a bad design, Holden use that pissy rubber gasket which breaks up into a soft silicone, i'd be lucky to fit my thumb through the hole in the oil pickup so it doesn't take much to completely block it.

Used to do it for a living Smiley, but lost interest after doing it for so many years, now i stick to the small jobs like brakes, in and out in an hour. I still have all my tools, press, engine crane, brake lathe, i've got almost every tool you can think of but i'll never sell them.
I'm not as keen as what i was when i was younger, if i were my Lane would have been stripped down in the first week, i've had it about 8 months and haven't even done the exhaust... The missus is nagging about that so i'll do it sometime in January.

Yeah she wants the exhaust on badly, she's no stranger to an 8, she had a VH SLE 5.0 before we got the EF.
She used to drive my XD to work, every night coming home there was a wank in a VN 5.0 and he always tried to beat her, he never did lol.

Good to see you're all up and running XeTurbo, i'm slowly but surely starting to get the bug back to start on mine.

A mate of mine used the theory 'Drive it as hard as you can without using the brakes'..

I just put a reco engine in my EF 2000kms ago, just drove it normally, haven't revved it over 4250 RPM yet. I got a dizzy out of an EL to build Oil Pressure, it had Oil Pressure with about half a turn, so the must of used Vaseline in the Oil Pump :)

Just be sure to do an oil change around the 2K mark, gets the daggies out before they start to play havoc with ur bearings.
