I doubt very much that the manufacturer has the time to break in each vehicle they create before shipping them.
In the owner's manual, idling is not recommended for over 3 or 5 minutes, can't remember the exact time they state. Breaking in an engine with just idling it for a couple weeks would probably make it fragile, hit the accelerator hard and it falls apart.im sure you could it would just take forever haha
What myth are you talking about by quoting my message? I am stating that I don't think they "break-in" an engine at the factory but more than likely run a test on it before shipping out.Brand new 07 Mustang GT off the lot with less than 500 miles on the odo, I took it straight to the quarter mile and proceeded to run it about 20 times down the straights. That was dumping the clutch at 6,000 RPM on every launch, shifting at redline every gear. The engine is in perfect condition, and actually posted dyno numbers higher than the normal motor.
Myths aren't good, but if you guys want to believe a silly myth like that go ahead.
