Re: Best way to runin my new XR6T Ute?
Hey mate. Congrats on your new buy. The best way to run in the engine is to vary your driving style. Especially for the first 1000km don't rev it to high or let it idle for huge amountws of time. After 1000km give it a bit of a squirt now and again and combine that with a bit of highway driving.
If I were you I would wait a while before doing the mods, lets say after you get the 3000km peace of mind check by your dealer. After that she should be nearly run in, and ready for some go fast bits. As for what mods to get, the phase I is pretty good for a base mod, but I'd totally recommend the phase 2. We have I think 3 guys on here who run 12.3 from the phase II.
If you are brave enough there is the phase III kit, which a member (who I havn't seen on here for a while actually) has on his XR6 Turbo ute, which did a best run of 11.9 I'm pretty sure.
