Congrats Mike, and welcome to the team!
I have seen team engines where the rear cover is closed with a special screw so it can not be opened without damaging it.

The NR fatory drivers I know, get their engines sealed as described here. The run them one race weekend and send them back to NR, UNOPENED!!

They usually gat 3 engines, of which one is always back in the factory for maintenance.

For bigger events they get additional engines which they also use only for this event and then send back to the factory.
