engine break in oil ?

When the time comes to start my engine is there any special oil that would be great for break in time ? I usually run rotella, I have seen this Z-max stuff and was wondering if it would be worth the money? practically everything is going to be new in the engine so I want to protect it from the get go. any thoughts ?
thanks steve

Re: engine break in oil ?

You don't want to run any additives or synthetic for the break-in period. John Deere has an excellent break-in oil but I'm not sure how it would affect HEUI injectors. Basically you want to run a lower quality oil for break-in so everything seats well. The super slick stuff will extend the time it takes the engine to break in.
