When driving let off gas let the torque slow you down, compression will help seat rings.... ( I believe thats right)?
Never heard that one before, but using the engine to brake the car puts a load on the rod caps, so I try not to do that much.
I just drive mine easy for a few miles, no set distance, and if everything seems ok then I go ahead and drive them like I intend to. Modern lubricants and metals are much better than they used to be and most rings are probably seated in within a 100 miles or so. I do change the oil out at 500-1000-2000 miles though, just to get rid of the wear in metals and debris.
