oil

fully synthetic, always, all except motors that are near a rebuild ( and new motors not broke in yet, extreme slippyness wont allow rings to seat correctly)

I use Valvoline non synthetic 10W30 motor oil,although I do pour a bottle of EOS in every other oil change.This is in my solid roller big block.I probably change the oil more than is really needed,but this gives me a chance to grease all the fittings,and visually inspect the underneath.So,IMO,changing the oil as often as I do negates the need to use synthetic oil.

Call your cam manufacturer and see what they suggest. You might be surprised.

I run Valvoline Synthetic in everything, except on break in as prviously noted. Then I run Valvoline 10W-30 or straight 30W with Comp Products ZDDP additive.
