    Does anyone know if they dump the oil after the factory dyno run? Just want to know so I can change immediately after delivery, or wait for 500 miles.

    That is not what I asked, that is your opinion.

    then no, they don't change the oil because there is no need to.

    If you had to change the oil as soon as you get the car, it'd say so in the owners manual... And that would be horrible customer service lol... Although given how things went I could see them asking that lol

    I'm with you, any engine builder worth a shi# always changes the oil after the initial break in. Let alone a dyno session at 90% load for 42 minutes or whatever it is. Oil and filters are cheap a supercharged Hemi is not.

    Just like my 14 Ram Cummins the manual says every 8000 miles I believe. That's fine I you don't want it to last. Every 5k with full synthetic for me. I guess I just care about my stuff.
