This has been discussed ad nasuem. Bottom line: some people don't follow break-in at all and redline their car with only 2 miles on the odometer and haven't had any problems even years down the road. All that really matters is just making sure your oil is up to temperature (takes about 4-5 minutes after starting the engine) before going above 4K RPM. If you do that, you should be fine.
