Roller cam's have no 'run-in' like a flat lifter.

Basically just fire it up and drive it. generally avoid driving a steady speed or full throttle use for the first few miles.. but give it some throttle as you need a bit of cylinder pressure to seat the rings.
change the oil and filter after 50 miles and give 'er hell.

I see . That explains why 1/2 hours searching the net I couldnt find anything on running in rollers but plenty on flat tappets .
