So after not having my V for 3 months, I figured I would change the oil, etc.
My problem I got Mobile 1 10W30 instead of 5W30. Will it be okay? Whats the difference? Please help!

If it gets hot and stays hot in the summer where you're at, I would say you're okay.

you're fine

if you feel otherwise then drain it and use 10w30

The owners manual states "If temperatures are above 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C) you may substitute 10W-30 with the Starburst symbol."
I run 10W-30 all the time here in Houston.

Dont sweat it. You will be fine all summer long. I once ran 5 qts of M1 15-50 and a quart of piss in a hi performance car (not the V) for a day. Not recomending the urine, it did nothing for performance. Had a great time that day though,,,,,,,
