When i get gears installed, i usually drive easy for a few hundred miles. I think everywhere I've had gears installed, they say the samething, drive easy on them at first.

The mustang shop I went to was about an hour away so I just took it easy on the way back. They said I didn't need to do a fluid change after break-in. I've had the same redline fluid in there for years.
