All you need is a brick, a flathead screwdriver, and some wire cutters. Same goes for breaking in an engine.

You gotta have a couple of hard pulls, about the first 20 miles or so, then drive moderately for a while. That's the basic jist of it. It's got to do with the pistons rings setting properly. I'll go into more detail if anyone wants me to but right now I don't have time to type it all.
