I think its a little excessive too, I just rebuilt my own charger. But, I'll still do it, just for safety. 1000 miles is excessive, I'd almost definitely say, but I'll probably still keep it below 4, 4.5 throughout that. Better safe than sorry, but even that only goes so far.
i babied mine for about 50 km (30 miles).
drove it conservatively for 150 (90 miles),
and then drove it agressively (not over 5000rpm) for 300 km (180 miles).
I did all of this over 2 days, to get through the break-in as fast as possible. hehe
Aside from getting the kluber through the system, all you're doing is heat cycling and seating everything which does not take very long. However as we all know, when it comes to g-laders it's better to be safe then sorry.
