using straight motor oil is a practice used by vehicle manufacturers for many years.

the big difference is the cleanliness of the internals and the working area even dust and lint are the enemy.

stp is ok but it attracts dirt like crazy you would need to be a brain surgeon to use it effectively and not make a huge mess.

but if you pre oil, pressure test and rotate every engine like you should before lighting it up all those fancy lubes end up in the oilpan before she fires for the first time anyway.
