Go with the spec for as long as you have the warranty at least.

I'd use what Honda wants to but once out of warranty, 0w30 sounds better

I'm going with spec but just looking to see what's a good brand with the small turbo engine.

Any major brand will do fine. It should be dexos 1 Gen2 licensed. Most are now but there is old stock remaining on shelves so check closely.

Go PUP 0w20 or M1 EP 0w20. After warranty go 0w20-5w30 Redline Oil. Keep oci to 4 to 5k.

I'm running 5w30 in my 1.5t. No audible or visual difference compared to 0w20. PP5w30 is close to 10cst as well as Ams SS. Really negligible difference in 20 and 30 weight here but gives a nice cushion to offset fuel dilution. just my 2c

I got the honda 1.5 liter turbo and I use Honda full synthetic 0w-20 during my "extended break-in" and then I put in what I call the 'good stuff', none other than the mighty Idemitsu 0w-20 full synthetic. Keep in mind, the KV100 is in the mid 8 for 0w-20 oil and the HT/HS=2.6. You don't need more than that as it covers up to 5w-20. Now the 30 weights will net you KV100 in the 10 range and 2.9 HT/HS but this engine is speceed for 0w-20 so you have to give that weight. look at my signature, lighter works better and in addition, in an engine designed for it.
