I'm confused, I thought you said running a higher rpm outputs less torque than a lower rpm? Didn't know you said anything about changing the gearing.

You just need to let the rings seat properly
normal town driving & short bursts of speed on the highway helps to do this

Many people drive it like they stole it & don't have issues

I used the first method for the first 200 miles, then i started driving normally, at least what is considered normal to me

There's more to an engine breaking in, than just the rings.
