Good information but much of the break in for a regular production vehicle is in the drivetrain, probably even more is required here than for the engine. Clutch, transmission, driveline bearing, differential, etc. These days engines have seen a break in like procedure at the factory but the drivetrain has had very little to nothing done to it.
