Roller Cam break in Necessary

Guys I’m worried now, I have about 5 hours of running time on my 427 bored .60 over Big Block, I have a Lunati Hyd Roller cam and & lifters and did not do a initial break, I’ve been reading up on roller cam and been hearing that you still have to break it in, I’m scared I lost the cam or am losing it

I dunno where you read that at but it's wrong. Roller cams do not require a break in. Why is because of the wheels on the bottom of the lifters cut the point of friction down to almost zero.
