I thought it said "V Tech" but due to copy right from Honda i think they had to change it

also the bearings in the spec 3 are quite simply put Cr@p, ive had 2 mates with this motor have the bearings let go, and they had to get bearings from boca.

Id suggest getting some decent engine bearings for it

just one thing to keep in mind you might want to tear it down and clean it out, a lot of these power house motors have fine metal shavings left behind so its a good idea to tear it down and flush it out, and while resembling it you should seal it cause its best to do while its still clean.

You shouldn’t let it idle for a tank that really dose nothing for you motor other than cause premature wear. The way that seems to work for a lot of people is the heat cycle method.
Once it starts and is running rich, drive by varying the speed of the motor. No more than 1/2 throttle. Check temps and once it reached 230 (should be 2-3 minutes of driving), shut it down. Move piston to BDC and let cool. Repeat this until you get to a total of 25 minutes of driving.
Search in the engine section for a better post that has more detail on how to break in a motor.
