I think my lifters and/or rocker arms must be slightly worn like Ron suggests. I switched to 5/40 rotella and it made no difference to the slight tapping noise on start up. It only lasts 1-2 seconds if the car has been sitting over night so I don't think I'm going to dive in there yet, but I figured I'd report back that there was no difference in going from a "0-40" to a "5-40".

When you go to synthetic it will clean out a lot of crud, if you run it for awhile the lifters may clean out and come back a bit which will reduce the ticking over time. So if you're showing enough oil pressure and it isn't burning I wouldn't worry too much. With oil in general thinner is better as oil lubricates by film.

You may want to short the first change though, running 0W is only really needed at -10C and lower though, if you're usually above freezing there's little reason to go below 10W40.

I think the reason to go with the Mobil 1 0W40 is because of the shear ratings it has over the 10W40, not necessarily the temperature environment. There is a crazy amount of threads over on DWeb about it and how it's a good oil for the Rover flat tappet engines.
