Thicker oil doesn't mean better lubrication. Thicker oil also does not have the chance to flow into all htose tight valve bodies and other passages for proper lubrication. You will be running hot because there will be more friction w/ the 50 weight. more friction means more wear and tear. You don't want that now do you. You only put 50w in older cars which are tired and have worn cylinders and pistons to restore some compression. not to mention its good to stop oil leaks.
