I use any group IV or V synthetic even a group III/IV blend like M1, 5W40. I also add a little ZDDP.
I don't change weight for the seasons; temps run from the 20's to 90's. I completely rebuilt my engine to stock bearing clearances and I have a HV oil pump, PH8 oil filter and a stock 951 oil cooler.

What is the state of your engine?

PP is a well respected group III synthetic.
If you want to determine how well your oil & engine is doing have an oil analysis done at each oil change.That will tell you if your oil and change intervals are suitable.
