5* or 8* firing it up won't really matter, the most important thing in the position you're in is that the engine fires up quickly to not wipe the lube off the new cam before it's running to lube itself properly. Also are you using a zinc additive or a break in oil or better yet Diesel engine oil to protect the cam and lifters. Regular (modern) motor oil will likely take out a flat tappet cam and lifters over time. Good luck, nice engine.
