Mine came with instructions. I let it idle for the first tank on the stand on the out of the box jet settings ( it comes preset ). then I ran the first 2 litres reasonably rich with lots of smoke. then on the final litre I starting leaning it slightly still keeping it on the rich side. Ive gone through 30 litres so far and it hasnt missed a beat, lots of compression left. If you havent got a pipe for it yet and dont want to spend moon beams on a RB 2045, then run a Jammin JP1 they work very well.

Default break in

just make sure when you break it in the first few tanks are at or above 200 deg. by wrapping the head i would suggest running about 10 tanks straight. then let it cool then fire it up and use heat cycle method to temp parts then rune and race just remember rb is a nova so wont get good fuel mileage until few gallons have run through it due to tighness of motor when new

The C6 is harder than h.ll, preheat!
Other than that, break in of choice, the one suggested in the folder should be sufficient.

Using a heat gun will help a TON with those first few starts. Some of those C6's can be real tough to get started at first. Don't get frustraited if you have a hard time. Be patient and you will have a very fast motor that lasts a very long time. I like the 2045, long header & a 6mm restrictor on small tracks, short header & 7.5mm restrictor on larger tracks.

You really need to pre-heat for atleast the first 20 tanks i would say. I've got just over a gallon on mine now and it still has some serious pinch and compression

I just broke in a new RB, great engine, sure it will get better after some more tanks. Definitely wanna use the heat gun, i tried without but my box couldn't turn it over lol. I heated it to about 170 and it turned over just fine.
