Also, to help the piston rings seats to "bed in" - it is best to decellerate using engine braking whenever possible. This pulls a vacuum in the engine and moves the rings to the other side of their "races", assisting in break-in and eventual sealing of the piston and rings.
I also go by the "RTFM" philosophy. "Read The F' ing Manual", and do what it says.
[But there is a huge thread on this forum saying lots of other ways to do it. It goes on forever... ]
