    Check your car manual. I believe it says keep it under 4k for the first thousand miles.

    You can either baby it (don't go WOT or rev over 4k) or you can use the drive it like you stole it method. I went with the baby-ing method.

    I Support ClubWRX
    I followed the manual (do not take over 4k until 1k miles) and my car is not leaking a drop at 5k miles. It will come down to prefernce, but I havent heard of anyone having issues that have followed this method.

    They told me to not go over 4k rpms for the first 1,000 miles too.

    I floor it whenever I can and I have no problems at 950 miles.

    I'll let you know when my car explodes.

    Personally it would be best to finish the break-in period first (unless you're upgrading the turbo because you'd have to do the break-in all over again). You need to give the car enough time to lube up and adjust before you start crammin' in new mods!!! Besides, this will give you plenty of time to research mods first as well as having a chance to experience the raw joy of owning a WRX once the break-in is over, you know, get a feel for what the car can really do.

    Oh, and and welcome to The Club!!!!

    And while you're waiting, here's some links I suggest you check out!
