I'd just be easy on it for at least a couple hundred miles. I heard of someone else getting their 4l60e rebuilt and they just didn't really beat on it for the first 500 miles or so to be safe.

When I got my crate motor, I just went easy on it for a few hundred miles and it's been fine since. I'd guess the procedure is kind of the same for trannies.

When I had my transmission rebuilt they said I was good to go. I assume it does take some breaking in but regular driving will do that. Obviously the more you abuse it the sooner it will die again. I am no transmission expert, but id say taking it easy for 1k miles or so wouldn't be a bad idea.

Edit: ^what he said.

You guys are both wrong. There is no break in period for a transmission. It's not like an engine with fresh bearings that need need to be gently used at the start. As soon as it has fluid, take the car out, drive around normally for a few minutes to ensure everything is working properly, all gears feel fine, you have lock up, then feel free to put your foot up its *** from then on out.
