I'm with WildBilly. I prefer Castrol GTX. Run a petroleum oil for the first 500 miles and then switch to synthetic if you want.
As was stated, with a roller cam, it's not as critical as a flat tappet. You're mainly breaking in rings, and as long as a good plateau finish was put on the cylinder walls, a good set of moly rings will seat pretty much right away.
