Just take it easy until about 1000 miles.

When it is ready, go second gear and build the revs to about 2,500 with gentle throttle then when on a straight floor it to about 4,500 revs and you'll just smile.

Don't bother taking it to 5000 revs and over because it will just run itself out and will be pointless. If I am having fun I change gear at 4,000 revs.

Turn traction off too.

It must be running over boost at 5800RPM? I defo feel it loose some torque and BHP at 4.5-5k RPM.
