If one elects of not following the break-in interval, my understanding is that the break-in oil should be changed before the engine is operated beyond the specified break-in limitations. The different composition of the break-in oil and any contaminants present (manufacturing residue) may have a negative impact on the engine.
I followed the recommendations except for passing the 5k rpms few times just for few secs. Do you think that might cause any issues in the future?
