If you are going to use a full synthetic, you will need to start off with one of their "break in" oils.
A full synthetic used right after a rebuild may cause the engine to take a long time seating the rings in, during which time it will be consuming oil and carbon will be forming on the piston top and valves. We have already had one instance of that happen to someone on the forums.
Any regular engine oil that is not too detergent heavy will serve to break in the engine and seat the rings in the bores or you can use a specific break in oil.
Check this site BITOG
for information about choosing engine oil.
It is pretty extensive with lots of oil information.
