This has been my daily driver and weekend auto crosser (which it does very well at) and that will be its continued usage except that I may cut down on the daily driving now that I have bought a $250 POS escort wagon to get around and haul parts with.

The break in will be like that for a new motor since I will have both a set of cams and rings to break in.

Since I am reusing the cylinders they will probably be the weakest link in this whole project.

Then again I have heard that they can work well with a rering all the up to and past 250K miles, so we will see.

Since most of the resused hardware will have been fully stress and heat cycled (or seasoned as some people like to call it) and remachined I am hoping that they will be good for another 150K or more.

If all the stories about 930 cranks, cases, rods, pistons and cylinders being extremely hardy are true (and my teardown appears to support this fact) then I look forward for the next 100K+ miles being all mine.

Knowing how fun 300+ RWHP was before I pulled the motor, I look forward to how fun 400+ will be with the lower ratio ring gear in the tranny to boot.
