Things NOT to do on a new engine

I was reading some post and though this needed to be bassed around and corrected , Names have been deleted to cut down on issues
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
This was an answer on guy added

If you fired up a fully built engine with a turbo kit attached with factory tuning your going to blow a few things.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
This was an answer from a guy that obvious doesnt know what he is talking about when it comes to new engines

That is actually not true at all. Completely stock engine, you can start a turbo car without ANY turbo programming. Same would go with a fully built engine. You can even move them around on their own power. I don't prefer to do that, but there have been many times here when that has happened. And not once was there ever an issue. There is no load, no boost, very little spark, and therefore no risk of blowing anything up. The plugs can get fouled after not too long and the car won't rev that great in some cases, but that's about it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

New engines are tighter and create more heat , starting a turbo engine with the factory tune dumps a TON of fuel into the engine , this can cause the rings to not seat properly washing doen the new unseated rings/Cyl . this also dumps fuel into the oil as most know fuel is abrasive and can lead to early bearing ware and/or total failure , I feel he knows its dumping a ton of fuel because he comments about the plugs fouling

This IS NOT a smart thing to do with a new engine and shouldnt be done . Will this 100% blow an engine I doubt it but it sure can shorten its life or not allow the rings to seal

Tom

Good info. Some people will do what they will when they need to( I.E. when they need to move a car) But I feel good guide lines are best to be followed when good advice is given by someone who's been there/done that.

good points tom. my car is proof in itself that that first statement is wack as hell. my car wasnt only started on a newly built engine with a turbo it was broke in and driven on a 17hr road trip to your dyno with the stock tune AND WITH STOCK INJECTORS. the engine doesnt know that it isnt stock and if you dont get out of vacuum there isnt any difference. a turbo doesnt just start building boost and go crazy as soon as the engine is started lol.

17 hour trip to tom's on a stock tune with a turbo. you got some discipline staying out of boost.
