Advice / Views on V8 oil usage please...

Recommended Posts

I've recently had a re-con engine put into my 110.

V8 3.5 and while I was it was out I had a Weber 500 on and Eidelbrock manifold added.

Here's the rub.. The old engine barely used oil !

The new engine is doing about a litre every 500 miles. It's done 2,000 miles since the transplant.

Do I wait for it to bed in more or do I panic ??

It's running very well, sweet hum when toddling along and a lively roar and intake of breath when opened out a touch...

What do people think ?

(I'm not sure if I should be worrying at all !)

Thanks in advance.....
