People on this board have talked about driving "Aggressively" to break in our Bullitts for best future performance. I'd appreciate opinions on what exactly is meant by "aggressive".

try to look at it like this.......there are those who...race, and there are tthose who drive under the speed limit. while there are many variances in between i think that should give you an idea

Aggressive driving also has negative connations, from a police officers POV. I was ticketed in my Monte Carlo for "Agressive Driving/Unsafe Start". Basically, I pulled a U-turn on a four lane divided (US 30 in Valparaiso, IN) which was legal, but I floored it & probably left a good 60' patch. Took the next turn at high speed & chirped the tires again when I mashed the pedal. A cop saw the whole thing, hence the ticket. Also, those people on the highway who are always weaving in & out of traffic are often referred to as aggressive drivers. I really try to stay away from doing that, it can be dangerous. I think everyone on the board is just referring to driving your car hard, ie: high revs & occasional high speeds to break the engine in.

I'm new to muscle cars but dealer told me to keep RPM's up so that's what I've beern doing.

agressive to me means just that,
quick starts, run thru the FULL RPM range, and keep it at high RPM's a lot
hmmm, it's more fun that way too!!

It is not JUST high revs...but rather REACHING high revs. You want the engine to vary RPM's as much as possible during break-in...avoid constant RPM's as much as possible. For example, shifting from a high RPM in 2nd down to 4th. Doing that will vary engine speed and give the pistons their full proper range.
