my new 18g!!!

So now I have an deadbolt ZILLA 18g with new topmount, injectors, fuel pump, along with all the other supporting mods. What would you guys say an appropriate break in time would be before I start going into boost. 300-500 miles, 500-750, 750 -1000???? I have 400 miles on the vehicle since the turbo was installed and tuned.

I'll post pics of the setup later on tonight.

I went about .2 of a mile when I got my new turbo...I understand break in is important, but my boost frenzy needed to be satisfied. Who tuned it, and what were the #'s?

no need to break in
the shaft rides on oil film
make sure you prime the turbo
before the first start up

I think you are right on ! Turbos can turn 28000 rpm at an idle, so I felt like if my 20G made it through the dyno, it would be alright !
