    I know I've seen it on here before, but I can't find it now...
    I just replaced my clutch, and was wondering how long I should wait until I can "romp" on it. I am thinking like around 500 miles of city driving? Is this right?

    engage it properly for the first 500 and you should be fine, don't do the infamous noob power shifts

    Thanks for the help, 500 miles it is, if it requires 300, then 500 is even better right?

    you are correct sir,

    300 should be fine, just baby it but if you want to be on the safe side go the full 500. your call on that one.

    I can tell you one thing, its gonna be hard, i really have to stop shifting at 5500. hondas dont have nice low end torque, therefor your gonna hate ur car for 300-500 miles.

    I'm thinking of starting to romp on it, its been 250-300 miles. I just cant take it anymore, a foxbody mustang (prolly a V6) pulled up next to me...you know the deal, i took it easy shiftin at 4k.
