If an engine like that is fresh and you have put 15-40 oil in it, the worst thing you can do is baby it. There will be moly or probably super moly rings in it. It takes heat to seat the rings and the only way to get that heat is to put it to work and drive it the way its going to be driven. The first 10 -20,000 is crucial. Leaving it idling for extended periods is the worst thing you can do.
