  • New engine break in oil change

    I just rebuilt this mk4 vr6 everything except bearings and oil pump: running 10/40 Valvoline got a couple hundred miles on it. Should the oil be changed sooner than 3k? I know on our Porsche's we change it after 50 miles new but that's air cooled and a lot of metal trying to get happy with each other: I am not used to working on this water cooled stuff so much.

    Not sure but VW most likely just sends them out the door expecting just regular maintenance?

    Thanks

    Will probably be fine, but it's cheap insurance..I would do one now and then every 5k with a good synthetic.

      So what do you guys think about the Shell Rotella T6 5/40w oil for this motor? Its big with a lot of the air cooled guys:
