Default power increase after 1000 mi ?

Anyone notice a power increase after 1000 mi? Almost like someone put a tuner in when I wasn't looking!

Sounds like youre describing my truck 392 as well and about 10.7 mpg. Im at about 1100 miles now and it feels slower now than when it was at 500. Tires definitely dont chirp from a light anymore like then did before.

I noticed a huge difference in HP at 20,000 miles, it really seemed to have woke up even more then.. gotta love it.

I must be one of the few that got my HP increase at about 500 miles and thats it (im only at 3200 right now though). My truck came as a tire roaster through all the gears lol (3.92 4wd big horn)

Nope, mine went in the opposite direction as well - sluggish, etc, and I blame the transmission for most of it. I am due for a plug change and am doing that in a couple weeks so hopefully that will wake it up a bit.
