    So much for the new engine break-in period. 😀

      transmission doesn't shift all that good. i break my shit in by putting it in the car and take it to the strip. if it don't break then im in.

      @Rodney Harris I've used this method for all my cars. My '14 Impala, I took it to the freeway, accelerated to 75 at a normal pace, got off, got back on at a slightly quicker pace, and repeated that 4 or 5 times and considered it broke in. My '20 Camaro, I took it to the freeway, gunned the absolute balls out of it to "75," hit the exit, got back on, gunned it to "75" and repeat. My '12 Cruze I didn't even bother doing anything special. Just drive it and make sure you don't use cruise control or spend more than 5 or 10 minutes at the same speed. My '08 Yamaha R6, I took it up to Miller Motorsports Park when that was still around and raced it straight from the factory all day, put well over 300 miles on it. '12 Honda CBR250rr got a similar treatment up the canyon. Never had engine trouble in any vehicle I've ever owned. Worst repair I've ever had to do was a ball bearing on my Impala from taking it on a rough dirt road a few too many times. The Cruze I still have, it runs alright but the transmission is notoriously crap so it's slipping a little, I'm sure I'll be putting a new one in it within a year or two.

      @Ayla Hughes Could be as simple as a broken gasket around an individual port. Deeper problems such as cracked intake runners have been found. How many can you think of?

    • G5

      @ronald simmons Yes, but the "gentle" camp is wrong. Engineering engines is my livelihood. Easy break ins are the best way to assure poor ring seating, oil consumption, and high blowby. Most OEMs will run new builds on a test dyno (*at full load*) before shipping them with a manual (written by lawyers) saying to go easy on the engine. DO what they do, not what they say.

    This is actually a great video and a lot of fun. Lizzy needs to get some sleep, her eyes are showing it. Trevor saying he dropped the ball is actually him saying he worked his but off but he’s too humble to admit it.

    Wait, I got it. How about focusing on your business, clients, and employees instead of a bunch of mouth breathers on NLthrow! This channel contributes nothing to mankind. But wait! There's one more nothing after this commercial interruption of your numb brained idleness! Go grab some caramel corn syrup fluoride water and a bag of unnatural GMO chemically ranch flavored corn chips and I'll meet you back here after this commercial of a white man with a black wife and 3 phillipino babies...

    Wouldn't you get better gas mileage if you have the fan only run when the engine is hot instead of on-all-the-time yeah? Less burning gas means a better profit margin, which is better for business, or am I missing something here?

    6:11 - Mud color is not as appealing as the washed color scheme. Prob. last time Lizzy wanted to wash it. (Whats the point of trying to keep it shinny). 🙃

    That was a fun episode to watch! Great editing. See how well the entire team does even when Matt is gone? They get it done. Also like watching the behind the scenes screwing around & bloopers. What a fun group. Looks like the banana still needs a fan shroud?
