Is it stock rings or is it aftermarket rings? There is really a difference. Oil comsumption is also based on type of usage. When are you comsuming more oil, Hard throttle, hill climbing for long distance or ??????. Was the engine rebuilt with Toyota stock parts or aftermarket? later Robbie

Aftermarket, Chromo Rings(which I understand take longer to seat). I live up in St. Mary's so I'm constantly climbing hills. Engine came from Toyota Car Parts in CS.

do a leakdown test on it..

we used to break in motorcycle engines with the full throttle technique.

and all other motors inevitably were broken in the same way.. .even if we were kidding ourselves and trying to be easy on them, we ended up in a drag race.
