Should be fine just let the car warm up longer now that the winter months are now on their way.

All SVTF manuals state 5w30 oil. Most people forget that there is a supplement manual for the SVTF.

I wont be using Mobil 1 anymore. Recently they dropped to a grade 3 synthetic oil from either 4 or 5 I cant remember. But basically if I recall correctly, this switch makes the oil not really much better than traditional oil and is still $5+ a quart.
