synthetics run a little thinner under heat, thus it's easier for it to get past the rings.

I thought it was the other way around? I thought conventionals got thinner due to break down?

I just run whatever 5w-30 the parts store has onsale and have for 6+ years of being supercharged. The only motor I ever lost had mobil 1 in it. But of course I don't blame it on the oil.
