It really doesn't hurt anything to wind that V6 up every now and then. Some recommend multiple full throttle runs, not sustained, to help break it in.
I don't see any recommendation those be in a straight line anywhere.

It should be possible to break it loose on ice/snow even without the Hemi, it can be done even on wet pavement with the V6.

But, if you want to disable the nannies, it IS your vehicle and I'd suspect there are chippers available to help you.

Nah, you'll probably find owners manual recommendation to make a few full throttle runs every now and then... just avoid sustained full throttle for the initial break in.

Turn ECO off, and nail it.

does ECO turn off completely by pressing a button, or does it partially turn off?

Just pull the shift lever back once and it should go to sport mode.

Per the owners manual ocassional full throttle is good for break in.
