I understand and respect your precaution- but I'd listen to 20v and Marcus - give it hell.
I did multiple non-synthetic oil changes. The first three had metal shavings on the magnetic drain plug that gave me panic attacks. I was changing every 100 miles then. After 1k converted to full synthetic lubro-molly and the thing runs great.
Crank it to 20psi and give it a pull. It'll put a big smile on your face!
For the average DIY'er, the non synthetic is probably just to save money on oil you're going to change right away anyways.

zddp. Lucas TB zinc+ is your friend
I use a bottle per change.... if the car stumbles and sounds like it is going to die, no rattling metal noise. It really works well.
It also prevents microwelding and glazed bores due to microwelding of material.
Alex used elf synthetic in my car and a larger filter
also, its been a long while since i check up on your build here. just read the last 5 pages.
glad to see you got it running.
motor is plenty broken in. but i understand you wanting to be extra EXTRA careful, i'll prolly do the same when i rebuild my motor.
and the motor looks shit hot!
im diggin it.
Here's a pic I believe its for Turbo high revving engines
so i went by Alex at Wentworth motor sports today he changed my oil and filter
Did my fluidampr pully
Also installed new 90amp alternator with ie light weight pully
He also lowered the car in the front and he removed the top of the perch in the rear if that's what its even called??
So i just need to get my Meth controller fixed or replace my menth system if i can't so i will be hitting the dyno
In the next week or two can't wait

Just ordered snow performance stage 3 controller. After hours of searching for parts for the labonte kit
The LCD board and touch have all been discontinued from all 3 different company's that made them
So will have parts in 4 days can't wait
Yeah, that's about what I do, and have never had a problem. I don't change the filter so often on the first few changes/flushes, but I use a Filtermag on the filter. But yes, the "miles" people think it takes to break in an engine is greatly exaggerated. Here at the plant, we put synthetic oil in them, crank them to verify no leaks, then some test guy drives it around our 3 mile test track, the car gets loaded onto a truck/train, and off to the dealership it goes. Break in oil/procedure pfffftt!!!
