    i'll be picking my blazer up tomorrow afternoon from the tranny shop, my question is, should i allow for a break in period for it. i plan on doing some 4wheeling on saturday, or should i wait a while, or certain amt. of miles before doing this, the rebuild is nowhere near stock, the tranny will easily hold a 350+hp engine when it's done, right now i have a stock 350TBI. any advice would be greatly appreciated. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    As far as I've heard, automatics don't have a break-in period. Just plug in and go...
