What do you mean 'heat treated and tested by the factory'?
Have you seen factory engine break-ins? I know I've seen a few dyno break-in's on prototypes at one of the GM factories on an FSAE tour. They didn't do anything special and it was rather short to be honest.
To be honest, I would assume it was much like the fore-mentioned method.
