    honestly break it in however you like. the one blanco linked is good. just make sure its TUNED. the biggest problem is not the break in, its the fact that people think they need to break it in before being tuned, NO! get it tuned ASAP, driving around on a basemap is retarded. its just a guess and no garantee that you are running the right AFR values. too lean and the pistons heat up and expand into the cylinder walls, too rich and you wash out the rings.

    Use non-synthetic oil for the first few hundred miles then switch to synthetic.
