Amsoil with hyd flat tappet cam?

Any thoughts on Amsoil with flat tappet hyd cam? My engine was rebuilt in 1985, then went into storage the next year. It should be back on the road (with new heads and exhaust) in a few months, I am wondering what to do about oil, additive, etc.....

Google search Brad Penn oils. They make an oil that has the anti wear properties in it for flat tappet cam engines.

I will check out the Brad Penn oil info. I know the Amsoil guys say their product will protect the flat tappet cam engines, but I wonder if anyone here has any experience with it.
