Drive reasonably for 500 miles, perform a trans service of fluid and filter.

It'* more of a 'take it easy' and then check it kinda thing. The Zilla had no fluid or filter changed at 500. It'* just a quick code scan, test drive, and inspect the fluid at 500.

I would say hold off on the roasting the tires and things like that until it has a few miles on it.

Even though its not of any good to you anymore, ll the tranny guys I've ever talked to have said that there is no break in. I've also taken some transmission classes at school and my teachers have said the same thing, there is nothing on an auto that really needs to be broken in.
