Default quick question

so i got my new engine and everything back today. I know i should take it easy for a while and break it in, but it still feels different. like there isnt as much power there. is it because it isnt broke in yet? or maybe its just mental because i havent drove it in a while? or is my canned tune back to stock now? thanks for the help.

Need some more details. Did you have your original engine rebuilt? Did you buy a crate motor?

Are you sure that you got a PI motor?

i just took it for a spin the powers there its more or less the throttle response and break pressure. maybe its because all the fluid was drained and it has to soak in for a bit? its more difficult than usual to brake and have to press on the gas more than normal to accelerate. maybe this will change as the engine breaks in

Fluids don't soak in. You need to bleed the breaks.
