The mechanics around these parts say move to the factory recommended oil weight for extreme hot weather conditions. That 5 or zero weight is for gas mileage purposes, and nobody drives only under "normal" conditions.

I've got a 2005 GT with only 22,800 miles, but it is tick free, so I run synthetic 10/30 to keep it that way, and I live in Florida where it doesn't get cold enough to even need the 10/ part.
