Re: Enginme Rebiulds on boss 290

What happened after the first rebuild did you run the car on the dyno to see if you lost kw.
How many k's have you on the new engine.
What are ford saying about the modifications verses warranty.
Are they aware it has been used on the track.

Re: Enginme Rebiulds on boss 290

kms since the rebuild???? I still reckon you need to give the engine at least 7-10 thousand kays to settle in. Mine chewed oil up to around 5-6000 km.

As AP says, a few more ks might help.......I couldn't see Ford knocking it back from the warranty point of veiw considering it is a ongoing problem with some cars..... Although from memory this car has had some sort of chip work as well.

Sounds like the dealer your using have not got a clue what they are doing!
a freshly rebuilt motor WILL use oil for the first 5,000k's and should have mineral oil installed.
