    At 110k? I've heard people recommend at 10k, but 110k?

    Can't really recommend a stay or change, but that you should have an oil analysis done, if it comes out positive, stick with what you're using. If it doesn't, change it up.

    Synthetic for the most part will give you better gas milage,extended oil change intervals and has better thermal capabilities.

    ??What oil should I use??

    Won't hurt to change to a synthetic. Often it's suggested to flush the engine before you drain your last dyno oil if you have significant miles on the car. Some flushes aren't recommended for turbo vehicles though, so watch out for that if you decide to flush.
