Just curious.
I was told that the car will be much quicker after I reach about 1500 miles.
I can't imagine how.
Any input?
Thanks
Tim

Re: Will the car run faster and/or smoother after the break-in period? (Pretarion)

easy answer.. YES.
Not so much smoother, its pretty smooth brand new. But the power will continue to grow, and it will begin to pull harder. It only gets better.. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

My 337 did change its behaviour at around 1500k.

That's interesting!
I am pretty impressed with the way it pulls right now.
I can only imagine the difference once I hit 1500.
Thanks

I agree. I switch back and forth between stock and chipped all the time...it cracks me up! That and valet mode....that's a killer

http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif for what they said. It even continues to gain some power later on as well. Take my word for it as I'm one of very few to have over 8000 miles on my car already and I notice a pretty large difference between how the car drives now and how it did at 2000 miles
