Get it tuned, change the oil, if it has oil pressure, and it is not running warm or making any noises, take it to the street and put it to the wood. If it is right, it should be fine. Never lost one yet!

To back up what Frank said, on the dyno where I used to work, on anything with a roller cam in it, we'd set timing, check for leaks, get it up to temp, and pull it. No break in.
