Break in question

ok so i read it normal for cars with lower miles to feel slow? (i got my car about 3 weeks ago and only have 350 miles on it because i was out of town for a while, a Auto 1SS). If so, how much actual power difference do you feel when you finish the break in? After you get to the 1000 miles, does it shed some time off the 0-60? And even though im not supposed to , i have kind of been friving with a heavy foot. will this hurt performence in the future?. thanx

SPIKE's a big stud man! That's the exact advice I was going to give you.

Are you serious? Go drive your car, have fun, but don't go crazy... change the oil around the 1500 mile mark and tell us if you feel a difference.

Yeah, don't go pouring a bottle of vodka into your gas tank.
