You still need to seat the rings and change the oil and filter after the first 1/2 hour.

Even with a roller setup we still break in the motor on the dyno the same as a flat tappet, for 1/2 hour running motor at 2200-2500 RPM with light load monitoring water temps and oil pressure. Drain oil, cut and inspect filter.
