    hey i was hoping to get some specs on the d16y5 such as cam gear timing, setting the timing belt. also my plan is to run this thing 10-15psi daily and 20-25 at the track, my setup is a bad ass head with the h-beam rods and vitara turbo pistons.but i need to get some ideas on the initial break in. im gonna let it idle through the 1/4 tank of gas thats been in there for awhile when we get it fired up then im gonna fill er up and go cruising. i was told to keep it below 4000 rpms and below 70mph. what do u think?

    This is an excerpt from a article on importbuilders.com:

    Lesson: Have it completely Dyno/Street tuned before it sees any RPM. Idling it LEAN for an hour will probably ruin the piston rings. If you must drive it to a Tuner, do so with a ECU Fuel map you know won't do any harm until above 3000 rpms.

    if cams aren't very aggressive and pistons haven't been changed, and injectors are 240cc. Then that should be ok. but really - there's no need to "break in" a block.

    You need to change the tune for the injectors before you run it.
