I did some more searching around, I think the ideal start temperature is around 135F.
Below that temperature there is virtually no oil oxidation.
The first time I start this engine I want it to fire it with the oil and coolant near operating temperature so that the oil goes through oil filter and any dirt or metal get trapped in the filter.
