Per the manual, it's broken in

The book says 620 miles / 1,000 km which is the current exact odometer reading

I’m a little skeptical though and plan on taking it relatively easy for a bit longer before a way-ahead-of-schedule oil change. I refuse to believe that you can leave oil in an engine for the ‘recommended’ 10k miles without paying for it long term, not to mention the original oil it was broken in on! I’ll probably do the transmission oil then as well, which is conspicuously absent from the maintenance schedule...

In other news, we visited an old friend on Sunday to say hello. Things being as they are, it may be another little while before this is back on the road.

The jury’s out on what I’m going to do with the RX7. I have no intention to get rid of it, but it needs the engine taken apart to re-seal (the dowels leak oil profusely) and while zero-rust and straight, desperately needs paint. Part of me wants to re-seal the engine, get some wheels with real tire options, and track it; part of me wants to treat it nice and also paint it and replace some of the sun-scorched interior bits, etc. in addition to the engine re-sealing.
