I think I read somewhere that over 1600 (or was it 2000?) is too much and can do damage

 An excellent option is to use Red Line break-in engine additive.   I
 visited Red Line Oil back in December (their factory is right down the 
 road from
 me) and spoke with their engineers.   They suggested a half-bottle of 
 additive with a typical 8-10 quart oil system.
I forgot to mention that they said the optimal figure was 1200-1300 ppm, 
nd that too much ZDDT was just as bad as not enough.   More isn't 
utomatically better.
