I myself am a mechanic I build race motors for people all the time and yes like a few others have already said you need to break in a brand new cam but they do it way differant that i do i have it sit at 2000rpm for 20 min and i tell the people when they come pick it up to go easy on it for about 500 miles not baby it you can romp on it here and there just dont do it all the time and you should be fine but once you pass that 500 mile mark do whatever you want with it and ive never had anyone come back with problems but its just really if your engine was put together right mainly
