Sounds like a very sound theory. I'll have to try it when I rebuild my 5 port GO

run in is complete when the engine drops temp instantly and gains power , usually happens within one or two laps while running on track . sometimes after 2 gallons NEVER START COLD!!!!!!!

That sound like a great idea. But I use the flood method it works great, it sound kind of crazy but it works great my friend at the track has been doing it for a long time a his motors run great. All you do is put your car on the starter box a fire up and then slowly richin the high speed and give it gas at the same time until it is wide open a the tires are barly spinning.
Do that for 6 tanks keep it running the intired time after 6 tanks keep it running and lean in an hour at a time until shes at a good temp and go racing.

Smittyusmc - That method is brutal on the con rod. Have seen four motors ruined that way (from on-road days.) Do not do it. WAY too much stress on the rod.
