Personally, I would not start running synthetic in an engine that is not even close to being broken in.

I have a 2011 cam head and depending on the oil weight vs ambient temperature, the oil can get pretty hot in stop and go traffic. Case and point, I was running 10w40 in Oregon but the engine got very warm in Nevada, to the point I had to stop and let it cool in hot stop and go traffic. This is not an issue if I am running 20w50.

So before you go spending huge amounts of money trying out various synthetics, just try checking if your running the appropriate viscosity.
