Just did mine and used Royal Purple. I'd go with a synthetic no matter whichever you choose.

You CAN switch to synthetic if you ran dino previously. Synthetic does not break down as fast from heat like dino oil does. It has a wider range of heat tolerance and dissipates heat better. The additives in the oil still do break down and the oil gets contaminated over time so you still need to change it regularly. Synthetic is also better for temps below freezing.

X2 , I especially like it in the winter. That dino oil takes a while to get flowing when it's below freezing, considering there isn't all that much oil in there to begin with. Plus it runs alot cooler in the summer. Didn't have as many overheating probs in my 660 after I changed to the synthetic.
