Don't know yet for the ST since I bought it last week but here's what I use for my track car:
Royal purple synthetic, 10-30 IIRC
Mobil 1 synthetic oil for trucks.
It gets expensive after a while since I change the oil after 2 track days but my motor is pretty happy and so is the turbo I added to it :)

I love to read oil threads. The fringe and NOAACK numbers are totally a roaring laugh.
Anyway, I just would say Mobil One is a huge billions $$ company and they sell endless quantity of oil. No websites dedicated to "how Mobil One ruined my car' except in threads like this as innuendo.. and claims it sucks by folks 'selling' some strange brand made by virgin prima donnas on the moons of Jupiter.
Which naturally makes it a superior product. After all they post NOAACK numbers..LOL
Anyway Mobil One suggests the Extended life oil 5W30 for the ST. I wonder if that is only to cover the extended interval? Or is the oil better? (it does have the GM 'dexos 1' rating.)
I went and looked at the Mobil One site.
The Mobil One Advanced Fuel economy oil in 0W30 also has the dexos 1 rating, and Ford fill comment.
The Advanced has lower metal (Zinc Phosphorus) numbers than the extended interval, and a lot lower than the Euro spec oil.. (Just to compare things I know nothing about)

Did I say M1 5w30? I said M1, How ever I may for safety of my engine I may use a different synthetic oil. but never pennz. Maybe Val syntec.

My claims are for Mobil 1 5w30 on turbo vehicles only.
I showed proven data. I don't give a shit if you used different weights on different vehicles for different purposes.
If someone wants to run Mobil 1 5w30 and send in a used oil analysis to see how much it shears, please do so for the sake of data collection. Tom and I both agree about running the more durable oils.
