What is the recommended oil when S/C'd

There's been a lot of debate going on over bearings. The claim being that 10w-60 is too thick when cold. Many have recommended a lighter weight such as 0w-40, however, S/C'ed vehicles run hotter, will this oil still be suitable and recommend for such an application (as the band-aid for the bearing issue)?

When the car warms up and you are under boost for some time, S/C'd cars run hotter. I'm not sure how the thinner oil would hold up or be optimal in such conditions. Asking to learn

There is no real info that the thinner oil helps just a lot of Internet experts on here. Talk to your s/c manufacturer and ask what they think or just run 10w-60 let the car warm up before ripping on it and keep up on your oil changes and enjoy the car. Don't let a silly Internet site stop you from enjoying your car.
