ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS The following tips will be helpful in obtaining optimum performance and maximum durability for your new SRT Vehicle. Despite modern technology and World Class manufacturing methods, the moving parts of the vehicle must still wear in with each other. This wearing in occurs mainly during the first 500 miles (805 km) and continues through the first oil change interval. It is recommended for the operator to observe the following driving behaviors during the new vehicle break-in period: 0 to 100 miles (0 to 161 km): • Do not allow the engine to operate at idle for an extended period of time. • Depress the accelerator pedal slowly and not more than halfway to avoid rapid acceleration. • Avoid aggressive braking.Assuming we all receive our Trackhawks soon, what should the recommended "break-in" procedures be?

With our experience I do not know if there is a wright or wrong way to do this. We have built many engines and take them from engine stand to running with break in oil. Change that oil and wright over to the chassis dyno for some serious RPM and power pulls. We have also had cars come in with less than 500 miles and put them to the test on the dyno and have yet to see any of them come apart.Drive it Like Ya Stole It...Let the Computer Know Right Off the Bat Who is Boss and How it Is Going To Be Driven, So it Can Adapt A Course

I'be been able to restrain myself with several pickups, a Hellcat, and a Redeye, so breaking in a 'wagon properly shouldn't be too hard. I hope.How many of you actually think you’ll be able to stay within these break in parameters recommended? That’d be an interesting poll to take.
