I am finishing up my On3 turbo build and need to buy some oil. I was running Mobil 1 10-40 in N/A form but I see a lot of people say to run a 5-30 with a turbo. Can I run a 5-40 synthetic Rotella?

The general rule of thumb with turbos is to increase one weight (ex. 5w30 to 10w40) per 7 (if I remember correctly) pounds of boost. Personally i would never use 5w 30 oil in a turbo car. I think the 10w40 you were using should be fine. (maybe just not mobil) I use rotella 15w40 routinely.
:edit. I though you said 5w30 rotella. 5w40 should be fine.
