It depends on the climate where you live.  I use 10w 30 being as I will never see below 32* F in So Cal.

Best to stay away from synthertics.  Too much involved at this point to change over

I run 15/40 diesel oil in everything.  And then add the Zinc additive as well.  Better too much high pressure additive then not enough.

I am running the new Royal Purple HPS which already contains the high zinc content for flat tappet engines.
10W30 for the Waygun's 318.
Cost is comparable to other brands of full synthetic oils which may not contain the zinc you need.
I had sold a good number of this product to guys who run solid lifter cams in big blocks,and also some smaller V6 engines with roller lifters.
Lots of positive feedback so far.

Ya, it's Zinc  ZDDP that the new oil lacks for our flat tappet V8s. A lot of the Porsche Club guys - probably even more fanatical about their cars than Ferrari guys, seem to like Brad Penn Grade 1 oil for their vintage 911s and that's what I use - it used to be called Kendall and is from Bradford Penna, hence the name. It's high in zinc and comes in more weights than the Rotella I used to use.  I like 10w40 in summer and 10w30 in winter. I can get Brad Penn at my local Quik Stop place!
