    FYI ..
    On the HC no break in is really required.
    Its all ready been done at the factory as each HC gets 45 mins of dyno time before the engine is installed ..
    First 500 miles drive it like its a rented mule you will eventually seat your rings properly for max hp ..
    Thought to throw this out there if some didn't know this.

    Gonna be fun!
    Nothing like this... :)

    That's true, but the rest of the power train could use a little break in time

    That's pretty much why 500 miles! :)Tops!! No need to worry it an SRT which is a good thing.
    Broke in 3 SRT8's via how the engineers told me.. "Rail it.. ." Really??
    Brakes are really the only thing to break in. Then some dot 5 if your going to the track.
    Few things to know and remember.
    All you six speeders :
    What ever you all do don't feather power thru your clutch just dump and go other than that there is nothing else with SRT. Most everything has been validated before it has felt the holding pen.
    Don't speed shift a dual clutch car it will roach the clutch plates dark blue!
    Expect to be replacing that clutch right after the warranty runs out with a spec 2 clutch stocker wont last past 35k if you drive hard.
    Regarding Dyno & Shops
    Its real bad out there !! This happens more than one knows its what we call Simple Jack tuning ..lol
    I know a guy they blew 3 motors on the dyno for him..lol .At the owners expense no less.

    Everyone should be so happy with our warranties :)
    I know of at least 4 huge after market shops who do this kind of schlock work they will remain nameless..
    Your HC will be virtually bullet proof from the factory no need to deal with such Turkeys ever!
    Let the fun begin!!
    Dollar to donuts in 2-3 years dodge offers a tune and a HP bump for us for a fee. :))))

    Were all getting one hell of a Hellcat to play with that is forsure.

    Every once and a while just nail it to the floor during breakin that will seat the rings and valves a bit higher than the norm..

    Max performance :)

    Now your talking!!
    SRT's need too breath!! WOT(wide open throttle) from time to time.
    Every car broken in hard have been fast cars faster than the norm :)
    There is a freak that pops every once in a while with a little more than the others this is how you unleash that inner freak .

    Tires are gonna be an issue prepare to buy a set about every year or so. :)
