I am following the break in suggested by FCA as well since I plan to keep it. Not just for the motor but for the rest of the moving parts that need to break in like hubs, differentials, transmission, transfer, etc...On the other hand, the last motor I built went in the car and on the Dyno and was broke in doing several back to back pulls at redline. It has held up fine for years since with no issues to report.
I carried a Colt 1911 .45 Cal in Desert Storm. I think we changed to the Beretta 9MM shortly after. There were many reasons for the swap including the increase in capacity and basic load, the ability to share with the rest of our NATO allies and it proved to more reliable in testing. Very soon it will change again.
