Question Break In - NEW 6MT Clutch & Flywheel


i'm having some trouble breaking in my new clutch and flywheel. who would have guessed i'd have to break in my car twice in it's life time.

how many miles till I can romp after a new clutch and flywheel? it's been 550 miles of pu*sy driving. finally today I've been pushing it and have noticed a lag during 2->3 almost like turbo lag when I get back on the gas after engaging 3rd. the car pulls just as hard or perhaps harder.

i keep hearing my (fresh) pilot super sports in the back chirp, so i thought hmm could just be traction control pulling me back (MDM engaged)..

after turning traction completely off i felt the same thing.
could it be a loss of friction between the clutch and flywheel?

any advice!?

here are the correct instructions. i've driven 550 miles and shifted 3 times for every mile on average.
that's 1650 shifts.. in the instructions it states 800 to 1000
