Default O.S. Engine Question

O.S. 21VZB V-Spec Jammin x1 crfe

Any advise on this motor sitting for 2 months.

I did the after run oil after my last race and plugged every hole. Should I be ok to fire it up or should I do anything else before I start it up. This is the longest I've ever had the motor sitting.

San Diego,Ca weather kept in my garage. Using Trinity 20% fuel.

It should fire right up!!
I stored engines for more than 6 months and they fire right up everytime.
You might want to use a new glow plug though!!

I just fired my V-spec up last weekend for the first time since Labor Day. It'll be fine.
