What's the suggested running in procedure? I guess it's in the manual?

Has anyone got their own recommended ideas on what to do to get the engine decently run in for longevity?
 
I haven't seen a manual yet but I'm probably going to do a filter and oil change after 100 or so miles on my own. Does this sound a good idea? Then I'll stick to Toyota's service intervals.

I'd say the usual. Just drive it normally. No labouring and all that. 

I reckon full revs by 500miles, though some say thrash it from the start to seal the rings. 

Modern engines don't need runnning in as such.

I think you'd be pouring money down the drain if you changed your oil after 100 miles. Tolerances and all that have considerably improved since the good old days. In all honesty I'd just follow the service schedule.

you need to keep revs below 4k for the first 1000 miles. it wont be easy but after 600 you can start giving it some.

Read the handbook today whilst sitting in a GT86.  Running in is as follows: No going over 4000rpm for first 1000 miles and have to use varied driving rather than driving for a 1000 niles at one speed.  Going to take me ages to do a 1000 miles, do 5 per day normally.
