Fully built golden eagle motor sitting for 6 years?

Hey, I'm a little curious about a motor I want to purchase... as I just blew up my jdm b18cR

There is a bottom end lined up that was fully built and assembled and blueprinted by golden eagle 6 years ago, and it's been sitting in a garage for 6 years without ever being bolted up, started up or ran at all. All high end brand new parts with purchase and assembly receipts from golden eagle. If I buy this and try to throw it into my car as a new bottom end, would I be running into any issues? Like air moisture getting inside and creating buildup or anything like that? Will i have to look to replace anything even though the bottom end has never been started? Not sure if it makes a difference, but i'll be breaking it in NA and then boosting it.

thanks!

Wow, it looks like I have the right man for the job on board, so random.

I was playing around with E.Lo, an uphill S bend. I shifted 2nd at 9000, ran 3rd up to 8 grand and I lost power. I tried driving to garagefive because there wasn't any weird noise and the power felt/sounded normal below 3k rpm. But 5 minutes away i heard the noise change, ticked like 3 times and before I could shut it off, it shut itself off. Ruined a rod and scorched the crank. TBH I should have just replaced the parts, but here I am sinking another amount into a new setup!

It's just a bottom end? If so you should be able to see the cylinders and take note of any surface conditions IE corrosion or dirt. If the motor was assembled with a good amount of assembly lube and wrapped up tight then it should be ok. I'd just squirt a little penetrant down the cylinders to free up any stuck rings before you turn it over by hand then assemble away.
