I've followed the OS break-in procedure with good results. Nothing exotic required.

After break-in, try setting the low speed needle at 3-3/4 turns out from bottomed out, and the high speed needle at 2-3/4 turns out from bottomed out. Set your mid needle flush with the housing, then turn it clockwise until the screw slot points at 2 o'clock when looking at it as its mounted in the car.

Good plugs are either OS P3s or O'Donnell 97Ts.

Temps over 260 would start to be worrying, but if you just tune for smoke and performance, that motor should rip at about 200 degrees.

Good luck with the motor! I love the two I have!
