2000km if you really want to be safe.

You do need to do a run in on a rebuilt motor.
Standard motor from the factory not as vital as the motor is already started and tested in the factory AFAIK.
Engines & gearboxes get pre -assembled & together had probably done a good few 100 km on a dyno before assembly. Oil & filters get changed during vehicle assembly, that 's why they no longer require a 1000 km oil change

Congrats! Amazing to think that both Ford and Audi where producing 5 cylinder RS models of very different kinds of cars at around the same time.

About the running in period, its only required when forged pistons are installed, 3-5000km's running in at low boost allows enough for the new rings to set before they can be used to their maximum. Most of the other parts would not need nearly as much distance to run in otherwise.

Thanks, ja the previous owner did install forged pistons. Apparently the previous owner used to work on Cosworth engines many moons ago, he did the transformation of the engine himself, a pure petrolhead with loads of knowledge.

Forged pistons will wear in just as fast as normal pistons, you just have to make sure not to push the car when cold due to the pistons being a lil smaller and needing to expand with heat and having slightly larger piston bore tolerances to account for the expansion. If you don't pay attention to that then yeah, glazing the bore etc is easy to do.

The rings are still similar or exactly the same material to stock rings and if the bores are stock material then the run in procedure will be the same.

1000km is plenty, key is to vary load and rpm all the time rather then baby it at steady throttle inputs for 1000's of km.

Think of how many revs the motor will do in 100km let alone 1000. If the bore is gonna glaze, it's gonna happen the first couple km's down the road.

Pulled apart motors with 150k km on them and the hone marks are still clearly visible, shows how little wear there needs to be to "run in" a motor and get everything to seat and last for many km's.

Key is to make sure ring gaps are good and bores and pistons are correct and in spec, that's the most common reason for bad "run in" imo.
