    Question Engine Break-In ?

    I might be retarded but I can't find anthing about engine break-in in my manual. I'm guessing take it easy the first 1000 miles. Vary the speed and keep it under 80?

    Keep under 4k RPMS for 1,000 miles in all gears... no Wide Open Throttle (WOT) driving... Don't stay at the same RPM for an extended amount of time (highway driving)
