paint the cam lobes with moly disulfide paste. (isky rev lube or crane cam lube) (grey moly paste) Moly Slip paste.
Use a converntional dino oil preferably with a high zinc additive.
Many "racing oil" oils have more zinc. Mot all off the shelf retail automotive oils have less zinc now.
GM EOS or Crane Super Lube break in lube is good stuff too.
Save the royal purple for latter.
But reguarless you want the moly paste (moly disulfide) on the cam lobes.
Get the engine started and running quickly without a lot of cranking and run at 2000+rpm for about 1/2 hour. SO the cam gets friendly with the lifters without scuffing.
You can get the moly paste under various bands and packaging.
Most automotive lubricant companies make it.
Don;t forget the dip the lifters in oil ( do not fill the lifters just dip them.
And oil lube the rockers. The whole idea is to avoid dry start scuffing.
