I will be doing the oil on my WS6 tomorrow and I will go with Mobil 1 synthetic but I have a question on weight. The car will not be run during the winter months and will see temps no lower than 40 degrees, that being said I will probably just go with 5 dub-ya 30 and should I maybe grab the high mileage blend or is reg synthetic ok?

Unless you have experienced a drop in oil pressure, I would probably stick with the regular 5W-30 synthetic oil.

It sounds like your car is a weekend vehicle and not a DD so I would stick with the 5W-30 Mobil 1. My cars only do 3k miles per year so I change the oil only once every spring with Mobil 1 5w-30 and a K&N filter. Use the best products and you will get the best results.My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555
My wife has a 2004 GTO with the rare SAP, 18" wheels, K&N Cold Air System, MSD, Ported TB, Frost tune, Denso Iridium, Flowmaster cat-back, 3200 Yank, 75k

Oil pressure I believe is fine, it sits smack dab I'm the middle at cold temps then at operating temp drops to about halfway between the 40 and the other tick on the left. If that makes any sense.
