I'm now an official V owner. I did a search on the forum for this, but didn't find anything (my search may have been incorrect) - I'm looking for thoughts on break-in. I seem to be having some trouble keeping my foot out of it.

Thanks

heh, yeah, i beat the crap out of it since day 1
i think the party line is avoid WOT, vary your speed, don't drag launch and avoid wheel hop...all that stuff for 500 miles.
then change the oil, rear diff fluid :)
but i just beat it hard every day :)

Hey hey now urbanski! Too much information! Just kidding - I hear what you're saying. I've had the best luck on past vehicles just using my normal driving style from day one. I just wanted to make sure there wasn't something special I needed to do for this LS6 - I'm thinking it's a pretty tough engine and should be able to handle anything I ask of it.

I appreciate the input. Now, it's time for the drive home...
