That is probably pretty much what I would do if I did a fresh engine though. (and have done with built engines in the past - new cars I wait until 1k for the oil change) Since the OP is already at 500 miles, just do the oil change and check things over closely and move on. Luckily the 5vz isn't some high-strung race motor...

Ever since I ran into the alternative break in site 20 some years ago this is what Iíve been doing.

I should do a compression check now that I have over 30k miles in the new engine.

I know Itís ambiguous, but my ScanGauge HP meter says 220hp.

It is the most frisky 3.4l Iíve driven. And I only have 4.10ís. The limited had 4.30ís.
