Break in period

So my new FRPP cams are going in on Monday pretty stoked question is what is the proper way of breaking them in? Should I do an oil change ? Thinking of switching to RP while I'm at it

Oil change isn't necessary but you know it definitely wouldn't hurt. & I put a couple hundred miles on mine before I really started getting on it.

Those cams should come with instructions for breaking them in.
I'm not familiar with the mod cams break-in procedure but if its anything like the pushrod engines, when you start the engine, after install, you IMMEDIATELY run it up to about 1500RPM and hold it there for about 20 minutes. If I recall correctly.
Like I said, they should come with break-in instructions.

After this initial run-in, they are ready to go...

JUST POUND ON THAT BEEEOTCH!!!!!!!

NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DON'T DO IT UNLESS THOSE INSTRUCTIONS TELL YOU TO!!!!!!!

If there are no specific break-in instructions then there is no break-in required
It would tell you in those instructions if there were...

Those things are going to be AWESOME! !!!!!!
