Thinking of Rotella T6, thoughts?

Been running Valvoline VR-1 forever, but have read too much oil pressure in most turbos is not recommended (straight from OEM turbo literature). At cold start, my gauge pegs and stays there for quite awhile; clearly over max recommendation for idle pressures.

Maybe a 40 weight would be better? My only concern is Texas gets really hot.

Diesel oil, yay or nay?
