Re: syn oils

it all depends~ you might be more suited for a high mileage oil to help with some of the wear and tear of the engine. Dont expect synth oil to perform miracles it mainly will help keep wear and tear and oil break down low, not remove what has already taken place.

I'd seafoam the motor then check into some oil like spector suggested or do a little reading here Car Bibles : The Engine Oil Bible

Re: syn oils

Even on a newer engine though you will notice a slight improvement over regular dino oil. I would always recommend going to synthetic, it's just much better engineered, but like said above, changing types of oil wont really affect what has already happened as far as wear and tear.
