I know Russ Wolfe used synthetic oil after breaking in a rebuilt engine
with conventional oil.

I also went on a site from a fellow who has decades of building VW air
cooled engines and he said never use synthetic oil in air cooled because
the case temps will read normal yet the head temps will be much higher
because the synthetic oil does not carry away the heat fast enough.

 Here's a link to his oil discussion and his reason.
