You should probably break it in on the street under normal use... Follow standard break-in procedures. No high revs during the first few hundred miles and whatnot.. THEN put it on a Dyno and see what it will do.

Breaking in an engine under controlled conditions on a brake dyno is the best way to do so if you can afford it. You can keep it in steady state when necessary or vary the RPMs, both at partial throttle or full throttle as you think best suits break-in.

yea, and this motor I kind of want to break it in right the first time, you only get one chance to seat the rings. its all brand new except bowtie block and reman heads, all forged, all roller 418ci with a cam that dies off around 8500rpm.

This place isn't particularly "near" Minneapolis/St. Paul in my opinion, but it is in Wisconsin, which in turn is consistent with the title of your thread: "anybody know an engine dyno in MN/WI?"

Its name is "Extreme Performance Motorsports" and its website is accessible via this link: http://www.extreme-performance.net

Good luck with your project!

Thanks everybody, that one in Blaine looks to be the closest to me, I'll try them first but now I have a few options to go from. thanks again, +s given.

anybody race at Rock Falls Raceway or Brainerd? I should be out to both of them later on this summer, I wouldn't mind having a few other Fieros out there with me!
