It was the kind where they make you sit in the waiting room but it was the only one that does royal purple oil changes. The service tech came in after the car was in the shop for a little bit and said "you got some lifter tick i popped the hood and heard where its coming from, if you want we can open the valve cover and take a look at it." Me and my friend look at eachother and he said the valve train(lol) is fine(literally just put engine together 3 weeks earlier and running like a top). The mechanic said your going to damage your pistons soon and i advise you to let us replace the worn part and when my friend told him to just do the oil change and leave it alone he got pissy and said whatever man your gonna mess up your car. Then as my friend was paying he made a comment like be sure to bring your car in when you damage your pistons, and i turned around and said buddy its a rx7 with a rotary engine it has neither pistons or lifters so STFU and stick to oil changes.
    Just wondering, if you guys put together the motor 3 weeks earlier, why take it to some shop to get the oil changed? Just asking

    Break in period for a rebuilt motor is, I THINK, 500 miles. Don't quote me on that.

    I understand the break in period, but if i go through all that work to build a motor, i'm doing the oil change, not some jiffy lube wannabe mechanic
