M10 Rebuild

Hi , recently did a full rebuild on my b18i with some mods on it.
All the engine components were sent to the machine shop to take measurments clean and crack tests , but the block needed new oversize pistons and since they are expensive my choice was sleeving the block with the original components.
Full gasket set
New oil pump
Full timing components (chains , sprockets , timing rails and tensioner)
Dbilas 292 cam
4-1 custom steel headers
65mm stainless all the way and a custom 25i backbox
3.0b FPR from 35i m30
small fuel increase on the afm
What power could be expected ?
Since the engine is back together and mostly done what kind of break in should i do ?

Drive it normally for a few hundred miles. Don't let it idle long with that new cam. To break in a cam, either let it sit at 2000 RPM for 20-30 minuted or drive it.

Break it in the way the machine shop tells you to.

now, sometimes I just mess with people. It's more entertaining that way. george graves
