Any views on the first 1500 miles? the manual sayz not to rev beyond 4000 rpm. However I bet anyone who driives a car for sale revs it past 4K. A freind of mine reminded me on phone last nite that this discussion has occured in the motorcycle press for many years. The prevailing attitiude is that a new engine is best broken in at various speeds with an occasional peak near red line. This allows the engine to "stretch it's abilities". And he pointed out that they are built to take it. By the way, has any one owned a car that was broken in very conservatively and just seems not to want to go as its reputation suggests? Darrell.
