I'm currently using shooters choice FP-10 which is a very light weight high quality non gumming oil used to lubricate the actions of firearms, and fishing reels, etc.
Not sure what would be best though and it seems motor oil would be too thick or viscous and might slow down the reaction speed of the piston that acts as the blow off valve.

OEM valves require no oiling. If it's sticking it should be replaced. Certain aftermarket valves(Forge, TXS, ect) that use orings vs diaphrams to retain the vacuum signal seal should be cleaned with a tack free cloth and the orings lubed with a lightweight lube. I use a very thin coating of redline assembly lube.
