I hope this isn't a stupid question, but after doing the head gaskets, is there a break-in period before it's ok to drive the car hard? Mine is running as good now as it was before, maybe better, due to the new plugs and wires. I don't want to screw it up before I have a chance to enjoy it.

Thanks,

David

I wouldn't think so because anything that has to do with metal to metal contact you didn't touch. I would still take it easy for about 500 miles or so to make sure the head gasket is good and broken in from all the expansion and contraction.

Nope...you are free to motor on.
