Default OS .12 Tz Break-In Help!

I'm about to break in my TZ and was wondering how much to ritchen it out. The local nitro guy said untill a good amount of unburnt fuel and oil comes out of the pipe. I'm looking for a good starting point. Thanks in advance!

It should be already set rich from factory but you could trun high speed out another 1/4 turn. Just make shore your getting alot of smoke when you start it up
