96 reman help

I Am putting the finishing touches on the reman for my 96 Xj and I need some advice. Do reman need to be broken in with the standard procedure, start it, warm up, and run it at 2k for 20 min. Or do I treat it normally? I'm new to this kind of thing and could use all the advice I can get.

If you are unsure and there was no documentation advising what to do I would follow normal cam break in procedure of 2k for 20-30 mins. I wouldn't want to redo it all over again because of a flat lobe.
