go to the cam manufacturers site, and it should have a break-in procedure. and if you are installing it, make sure you use plenty of engine assembly lube on the cams.

yup, do not use synthetic during first breakin, just use single weight crude, run the engine for 1/2 hr, not allowing the engine to go below 1500 rpm's, then change the oil out....
