Yep, I'd say if 5W30 is standard and you have too much (you need to work out what is too much) oil pressure when cold and not enough when hot then 0W40 is going to be better suited.

The iron cylinder liners are being removed in favour of plasma-spray lining like the GT350. So it is technically more "all-aluminium" than it used to be. :shrug:
