I have questions about your driving style for your break-in, seems like your break in was perfect due to no oil loss.
Everything else was getting replaced so I figured why not an alternator too. Picked it up from maniac motors:

As for the break in, I used a lot of engine braking up and down hills. A few spirited accelerations but no WOT or over 4.5K or heavy boost. It seems like if you make your engine work hard without punishing it you get good results! So avoid babying it, but avoid killing it.
