Preservation fluid/oil.
Only at first (initial) start-up as Fuel control unit, Fuel flow x-mitters and everything downstream the fuelpump & system is preserved with preservation fluid instead of fuel. Most Engines are preserved for 365 days ex-factory.

You pay by the motor and per yard of carbon fiber.

Not to mention the material and mechanical work that Sikorsky put in to the gearbox to transfer three times the horsepower in a box the same size.

We all knew the "AFFORDABLE" Health Care gig was probably going to get funded indirectly by Big Gov't Shenanigans like this.
