    Counted ba as an Italian tune-up pag high speed driving or revving lang?

    Kagabi pansin ko after running * 180kph medyo parang smoother yung takbo ng makina...

    this is done a lot on the dyno. pang tangal carbon deposit. many times you gain a little hp (1-2) after natangal na lahat.

    Used to do this a lot, when gas prices were much cheaper, ngayon ko lang nalaman Italian tune up pala tawag dito.

    EVIL! :lol:

    Best to race the engine under load, but find someplace isolated or empty to do this.

    On the racetrack is the best. After a 20 minute track run, most of us in the ford club felt our engines loosen up and run better.

    Kawawa nga lang yung mga tires mo. :lol:

    Yup, shift at or near the redline in every gear, and do it under load (while moving)... not while parked. Revving your engine while parked is a good way to shorten the life of your cooling system. :lol: Sabi nga ni Mazdamazda, you should be able to hold onto the revs after letting go of the gas, and you can only do that while in gear and moving. :D

    About five to ten minutes of "hooliganism" should suffice. Don't do drag-race style peel-outs or burn-outs, though, and take it easy on your gearbox... oh, and don't bounce the engine off the rev limiter... it's not good for the engine. Oh, and don't do it on a hot day, please... you might damage or overheat the electronics.
