synthetic or conventional oil?

I could use some advice as to what type of motor oil to put in my newly rebuilt 406. CR is around 9:5 to 1, to around 10:1 max. (not quite sure).

Dart pro 1 aluminums 180CC, 76CC combustion chamber. Not sure if this really matters.

I've heard some good things about AMSOIL, Mobil 1, Valvoline and so on.

Just wondering what your recommendations are.
