Oil for 2006 forester xt turbo

My dealer and the local Impreza club all insist that Castrol RS 10W-60 is the best thing to use in Turbocharged Subarus. Since I have a pre-paid service contract on my Forester, that's the oil I'll be running.
If that's hard to get a hold of, Mobil 1 5W-50 would be good too. It would be my choice, before the Castrol.
If the 5W-50 stuff is hard to find, 5W-40 could do it too. If you can, then I would go for Mobil Delvac 1 5W-40. I am running this in my 85k mile Impreza and it has stopped the piston slap.
Shared 1st place
Castrol RS/TWS 10W60 / Mobil 1 5W-50
Mobil Delvac 1 5W-40
Mobil 1 5W-40
Any xW-30 oil would worry me, that turbo can get hot!
