Listening to you, a lot of people are going to trash their engines.
The SRT manual would disagree with you, as would the SRT technicians. I asked this exact question, they said that yes, the 6.4 *does* require a break in period.
500 miles / 800 kms is what they suggest, and pretty much every SRT manual says the same thing. If this was a Lambo or Ferrari, then i agree with you as they're run hard before we get them - but the 6.4 Hemi is not one of those engines.
