I only have 450 miles on my virgen 5.7 and the other day I was challenged by an annoying tin can sounding ricer and got the car to aboput 105 until i realized wait a minute this car hasnt even been broken in yet. Will i face the consequences of this later on since i plan on keeping this car for at least 5 years? Whats the typical break in period for this car some people told me 1000 others 2000 im confused. Also when shouldi change my oil for the first time i heard at 1500 and a new oil filter to get out any of the loose shavings from the engine that were left in there during the manufacturing process.

Owners manual say no wide open throttle from a stop for the first 300 miles. Nothing other than that in the manual, and the dealer didn't even tell me about that. I don't think one run to 105 is anything to worry about.

Like mech said, no WOT until after 300 miles, so you should be fine at 450 miles.

Romp on it good and hard one time. Seems like these new motors don't need the long break-ins of the past. Although I did take it easy for a while just in case. One good hard run can't hurt, just make sure you're good and warmed up first.
