Assuming this is a fresh rebuild I would recommend something with some zinc to coat the cam followers.  And since the engine is clean a good detergent oil to keep it that way.  Have you installed an oil filter?  My current favorite oil is 15w40 diesel oil.  And change it regularly.

 

Should we talk about engine break in or has your builder briefed you there?
