use the zddp additive and assembly lube for break in with dino oil of your choice.
after that you can look into oils that still have zddp in them.
valvoline vr1 race oil has plenty of zinc and phosphorus for cam lube.
also mobil 1 5w40 is about the highest you can find. 1200ppm zinc and phosphorus.

run it 15 to 20 mins, over 2k rpm, under 3k rpm. no idle time! no steady rpm time!
once your driving it change the oil at about 500 miles.
change it again at about 1500. then its ready to run.

good luck
