Break in period

hey guys!
So after dealer delayed my car 3 times or so, today is the day I'm going to go pick it up!!!! I'm super excited to the point i didn't sleep all last night..yes I'm a looser.haha..

wanted to ask about the break in period, i got the 335 6 speed, is there a limit on how high i can take my rpms on a new car? with my current accord i was told 4k but this is a different car so not sure.

thanks
