How long untl I run high h.p. tune?

So, how long should I wait to put my high h.p. tune on my new motor? New commonized long block and heads with ARP's installed and EGR block off. Eric sent me a mild tune so I can have tranny controls for my SunCoast tranny before it dies. It didn't like the stock Ford tune so much. Any ideas and thoughts anyone?

I would run some good rpms in the low HP tunes for about 500 miles, change the oil, then let er eat.

500 miles of up and down in the rpm's....but stay in the mild file to seat the rings...after 500 change the oil, then let it rip, just dont spray it.

No spray now.... my balls are too small right now. I'm waiting to hit puberty on this truck before the NOS comes. Been there done that on many other rides.

I prefer DELO 400 for dino oil.
Rotella synth is good.
These two beat Rotealla 15-40 dino hands down in UOA results I've seen

I don't have an oil bypass YET. You think synth is worth it for me?

Re: How long untl I run high h.p. tune?

Not really. The way a PSD shears down oil, it needs changed around 5K anyway. A bypass would be great for the wear factor, but without going extended drains syn isn't worth the money.

IMO go with DELO and change it on time.... should be a happy truck.

Re: How long untl I run high h.p. tune?

Anyone think I should switch to 10-30 or stay with 15-40? Remember I do live in HOT Fla. Should that make a difference? This oil will be changed WAY before winter. Any thoughts?

Absolutely NOT, especially since you live in hot florida. The only ones who can get away with 10-30 are waaaay up north in AK, CA, etc.

I've seen crazy iron and wear numbers from 10-30 in a psd.

DONT DO IT

Stick with a good, proven oil like DELO 15-40
