Sure thing. 5 tanks wouldn't hurt, I actually did 4 tanks on my motor. You could do the 3 tanks, and then just putt around with your car for two more tanks to make sure everything is working right? Just watch the temp, and make sure the fuel tank and lines are empty when your done. Be sure you use the "after run" oil, and you'll have a easy to start and consistant motor in your car.
yeah, i hav don the reserch that use after run oil if storing over a week and use/empty all fuel one finished ect, thanks for ure help but cpuld i ask u a Q
were u talking in farenhiut or celcius wen u sed keep below like 230 degrees?
this is the most popular way to break in a engine for racing.

From the very 1st time you start your engine, plop the car on the
ground & begin running it in a parking lot in 2-3 minute intervals,
tuned only *slightly rich* getting the temps up in the 200F range on a
normal day. Every 2-3 minutes, shut the engine down & let it cool
completely with the piston at BDC, and then fire it back up; continue
this cycle until you've run 15 min or so, and then bump up to 3-4
minute intervals. Vary the RPM and don't be afraid to get the temps
in the 200's. What you want is heat cycling of the components without
the incredible stress that comes with breaking an engine in when it's
overly rich & cold. After cycling the engine in this manner for about
20-25 total minutes, it'll be ready for the track and race tuning.
BDC=bottom dead center (piston at the bottom)
TDC=top dead center(piston at top)
