I am finally putting together my 532 ci. Do you guys have any suggestions about what types of assembly lubricants I should use?

I am thinking about COMP's products...

Something slippery with really good film strength which doesn't run-off.
There are a lot of products which fit the bill ... I use Torco MPZ.
