Yea you don't need nearly that much time for break in.

The cylinder bores are round, the pistons are round, and the rings are round. Assuming everything was properly assembled it will break in fast. With the advancements in ring materials, crosshatch finishes (yes there are multiple ways to manipulate the crosshatch finish), and piston technologies there's no need for the high mileage babying break in like back in the day.

Do an initial startup on a dedicated break in oil, let the oil get up to temp and let it idle at various rpm levels no higher than 3k for 20-30 minutes, change the oil and filter (still use break in oil), take it to the dyno and do multiple pulls at varying load levels and rpm limits, change the oil and filter again to whatever oil you'll normally use and then tune the damn thing. That's it.

Engines that are broken in this way rarely see leak down test results over 1-3% and if they are tuned properly, maintained properly, and follow some basic rules regarding oil temps and how you drive the car then your engine should last a very long time and never see leak down over 5% unless something breaks.

It's hearsay and I don't have personal experience. My cousin had issues with his tuning, dude couldn't make any power, says never to use him and to use some other guy that he goes to now.
