I always run synthetics. Less noise out of the engine bay (which is always a good sign) and my butt dyno senses more power!!! I run 5000 miles between changes and no problems yet. No heavy towing tho.
Sorry to back track, but someone said something about an oil cooler? I remember seeing on one of the car shows (maybe GEARS) that oil that is too cool cannot burn off any excess water in the system. I believe that the magic number was either 180 or 190 degrees. At that oil temp, the motor will cook off any water in the system. Running consistently below those temps invites rust issues in the motor internally.
