My car is in the shop getting 3.90 gears putt in as we speak. I was wondering is there a special way to break them in??:headscratch: and how many miles should i run it before i really put them to the test? Thanks
there is no need at all to change the fluid after 500 miles thats total BS. When you buy a new car with 0 miles do you change the gear oil after 500 miles no. dont put out incorrect info if your not sure.Drive for 500 miles or so, without pounding the throttle and no gear assisted stops....after that get ur differential oil changed cuz there will be alot of metal shards that shave off from the wear pattern breaking in that you wanna get out of there...i reccomend full synthetic after the 500....be sure to put in conventional oil during the break in period to allow proper heat cycles, its not a good idea to jump on the gas right out of the shop because the metal isnt heat treated and it can warp under high heat and pressure before break in is done. full synthetic oil will keep it to cool during break in which is bad so remember conventional oil first 500 miles then ur free to ride...

drive 20 miles park and let cool repeat that a couple times and your good to go. its never failed me. like I said before gears are made to put in and go.
In my 25 years of turning wrenches I never heard such nonsense.
stock gears cleaned at factory what are you smoking? so they spin them for 500 miles before installing the rear then clean them?:headscratch:yes change oil....
after 500 miles change it.
it will get gear shards, dust deposits, gear covering, ect ect off.
stock gears are cleaned at the factory.
i also use full synthetic, personally i used RP. its quite easy to do
put car up on jack stands.
unbolt rear cover
crack it open with a screw driver and let drain
add new RTV
in the v6 tech in my DIY garage theres a list on how to do it on a V6, if you decide to do this let me know if the measurements are the same?
but def change oil!
and id wait 500 to be safe
like i said everyone will say somethign different do what you feel is right
