Hard to believe I can rebuild the engine and screw up the ignition timing...
I'll submit this respectfully here. If you read Wayne Dempsey's book, he explains that the first few Oil dumps will look like you are panning for gold if you look at the oil carefully. He's right. It goes on for a few hundred miles. I'm sure lots of it is off the rings. There are lots a metal fragments for the first 4 or 5 oil changes if you do it like Wayne suggests. Whether this targets the turbo for attack more than anything else is I'm sure where this discussion stemmed from.

Moral to the story, look at your first 4 oil dumps and you'll be a little queasy.
