I was reading the manual on my coupe and it says not to exceed 4k RPM's. It also says you should not drive it at a constant RPM. All this until you have reached 1400 miles. Has anyone done this? What is everyone’s opinion of this? Thanks

Personally I have just heard not to floor it or take it above 4K RPM's for at least the first 1000 miles. Most people do it anyway.

Motor break in is suggested with all new cars. The idea is that all the little moving parts need a little time to settle into their place and come together perfectly. I've never seen scientific data that showed how important this is, but I did it for the most part with mine, though only to 1000 miles. I did break that rule every once in a while, but not consistently.

Nothing has fallen off yet.

From my experiences and research the break-in-period is BS. When I did my research on this, I came to find that every manufacturer tests all the engines before they even make it to the dealer. So, in most cases the engines have already been reved to redline a few times.

Now, would I personally take it easy on the car for the first thousand miles or so? Hell yeah! Why? Because I believe it is more of a break-in-period for the car as a whole, and not necessarily the engine. This gives the chasis time to settle in with the suspension, and the transmission time to settle in with the engine, and the electronics time to settle in with everything else.

Well all of that, and because I'm cursed with bad luck when it comes to cars...which is why I'll be yanking the engine and rebuilding it (with some extra funny parts ;) ).
