Keep increasing the RPM limit slowly.

Best is to be in that range as mentioned by you 2000-2200 RPM.

My confusion here is, why is Hyundai recommending a specifc range 2k - 4k rpm? They are not even saying keep it below X rpm.

The production process and metallurgy is so advanced and refined now that the running -in does not mean much for modern vehicles.
