My experience with running engines in is that the first 500ks is the most important, don't labor the engine and don't over rev it.

running instructions will be in the manuel from memory it is something like vary speeds for 1st 1000k dont idle for too long or labour in high gear. avoid excessive braking, engage front hubs (Probably not an issue) to lubricate front diff. and dont tow or give a thrashing for 3000k ENJOY

Andrew, I think you will find, most manufacturers have already run there new engines in on dynos long before they get fitted into the vehicles. There is not a need for dedicated run in periods. I would suggest just driving normally, dont thrash it (if you would) and stay away from towing for a little while.

Just take care and its mostly common sense!

Enjoy the rig!!
