If you change your oil between 5K and 7.5K miles ANY synthetic oil will be much much more than adequate.
I use Amsoil OE because the local Ace hardware store sells it at a good price.

AMSOIL OE Synthetic Motor Oils help provide better wear control, high- and low-temperature protection and increased fuel economy compared to conventional oils. The oil drain interval recommendations for many of today’s vehicles extend well beyond the traditional 3,000-mile interval, some up to 12,000 miles with electronic oil monitoring systems. AMSOIL OE Oils provide excellent protection and performance for the entire length of the original equipment manufacturer’s recommended drain interval.

AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world’s first API-qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL, The First in Synthetics®, to do the best job protecting your engine.

The last time I bought amsoil off their website I had to pay sales tax and shipping too. After all that it was was cheaper just to buy it local.
