I don't believe there is a break in period for turbos? Is there really?

no break in period, but before any dyno I will adjust the tune to my liking etc. Once that is all set I'll get to the dyno. Hopefully next weekend

Thanks JP for being so prompt with everything. As you know, the sooner you get the information back to Vargas, the sooner the rest of us preorder guys will get our turbos. I appreciate your efforts.

i thought i remembered something about a stg 1 tester that didn't break them in (as in, a couple of days gentle driving, not a full 1000mi break in) and destroyed them'? many months ago.

We had a rear intake tube come off and destroy the rear turbo. Spit the turbine wheel head out the exhaust. We wont have that problem anymore. They all come with the bracket to hold it on.

Just figured with everything being brand new ie seals,bearings and such you would want them to seat really well before running them up thats all. I dont think it would hurt? I know i will be taking it easy for the first few hundred miles.

Piston rings are completely different then turbo seals. One thing you can do (and I do personally) is prime the oil feed by pulling the fuel pump fuse, cranking over for 10 seconds.

These bearings are completely different than a crank bearing as well.

Even on that note, when you break in a freshly built motor you break it in HARD.

There's nothing to break in. These are journal bearing turbos, not pistons in a combustion chamber where rings need to be sealed properly.....

So there will not be an additional charge of $25 for the bracket?

Of course not. I have stated multiple times each set comes with one. If you want to buy a bracket separately for your stock or upgraded turbos, they are $25.

Nice, apparently I'm used to other vendors who charge additional for their "revisions".
