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.

So i can assume no break in is required on the engine then...
For sure i will run some miles on it before cranking it

No wonder all the new cars use them lol. Ahh the wonders of of modern tech.

|357f-150||No need to break in the roller camshaft but being a new engine, some people like to take certain steps to ensure the rings seat properly, depends on what your using, your call on that one. Good luck|

|lluciano77||You don't need any break in with a roller cam. Just make sure everything is safe and drive it.|

|BOBCRMAN@aol.com||As long as everything is well lubed on startup. There is no actual break in on a roller cam.|

|SkyMan9600||I think you need to run it "nicely" for a little while before romping on it with a new roller cam, but I don't know... I would like to know the answer to this also guys...|
