As Tsiber said, the break-in period is tough, since you can't rag it out, but BE SURE YOU BOOST REGULARLY - just don't go over 5k rpm for the first 500-600 miles. Stay below 5k, but boost hard up to 5k. This is good for the piston rings to seal properly, and it won't hurt the motor as long as you let the engine warm up fully before hammering it.yeah, i just got my rs not too long ago. the worst part is the break-in. it's so hard not to get on it but its worth it. grats!
:laugh:Whatever you do, don't let them talk you into an SAFC.
Tuning Technologies as well;FastForward said:who would you consider a good tuner in SoCal? Ive used RoadRace for my Talon in the past and they are pretty cool, but Im open to any suggestions.
Nice, I'm in the same boat, just got my IX on Tuesday it had 13 miles though when I stepped in it, about half from the salesmen going to fill up the tank while the financing paperwork was being filled out. It's a huge step up from my boosted RS eclise. What color did you go with? I got the tarmac black.Hey guys, just wanted to say that I'm now the proud owner of a brand new ix!!!! and with only 7 miles on it I couldn't be any happier. This isn't my first Mitsu, as I already own a 90 Talon TSI AWD. It's just that the EVO is so much nicer.:thumb:
OMG this is sooo hard. I took it over 5k once not much though stayed under 6k. and only because the gears go by so fast. I've gotta put another 250-300 miles on it before I really get on it. Hopefully I'll finish that up this weekend.As Tsiber said, the break-in period is tough, since you can't rag it out, but BE SURE YOU BOOST REGULARLY - just don't go over 5k rpm for the first 500-600 miles.

The only white ones I saw were the RS's, but it did look very nice. My choices were between silver, blue, and black. To me nothing better than a clean black car, the only problem is actually keeping it clean, lol. I'd love to put some nice tint all around but we can't have any on the front windows here in Jersey. I also now have matching mitsus:I got the White Evo...personally my favorite color. Looks great with the light tint that i got. Im not a big fan of tinted windows but I really don't want the interior to get ruined due to the un here in SoCal.
