first 100 miles I was deliberate about the break-in.
Hot / Cold cycles (thermal expansion / contraction) and building boost in high gears up through the RPM's to help seat the rings, and a lot of engine braking to also help seat the rings.

I'm at 530 miles now and i'm still not going above 4-5k with my alarm set @ 5k, but i've triggered it a few times when in 2nd hehe.

The motor is solid once you quit smelling gaskets and other burn-in by around 250 miles you are pretty golden.
