MERF-09 is on a distinguished road

15w40 diesel or gas oil. The diesel oil has a lot of zinc & better additives which will help everything seat together during break in. After 500 to 1000 miles drain the oil. I wouldn't run it hard till everything seats together. Also most autoparts stores sell break in oil additive if you want to go that route.
