    I'm jealous lol. Have fun driving around in that 114 degree weather :P. At least it's SWP so the car shouldn't get as hot as a black car

    I was in Wichita this past weekend. I never thought it would be possible to come back to Miami and think "wow it's so much cooler here"

    If you're on the highway then change gears every couple of minutes so that the engine isn't at the same RPM for long periods of time. You don't have to change speed, just RPM. This will help the engine break-in.

    Make sure to follow the break in procedure.
    On your road trip make sure to very the RPM's. Don't let the RPM's stay in one place the whole trip. Shift in to 4th once and a while. Try to stay under 4000rpm.

    Ok so first Impression is OMG I got massive Wood! didn't take it over 4k and took side roads etc so I was changing rpm's quite a bit. My trip tomorrow is about 400miles total, alot of hills and bends on country style roads, so I'll be changing speeds and gears alot which i'm looking forward too. My 1k will be next week. hope these links work.
