uhm.... honda's take 10w30. id stick with whats recommended.
change your oil with 10/30, your oil could be old and broken down causing you to loose pressure when in high rpms.
drive my friends z to miami one weeken and ran about 50 to 55psi oil pressure at 3500 rpm. had the oil changed while there and ran about 65psi on the way back, so it makes a difference.

not really no, if you have a minor leak then a thicker oil will just leak out slower. ive had engines with over 230k and i ran what was recommended. never had a problem, if its burning or leaking alot then that needs to be repaired, not just a quick fix. that just leads to bigger problems. but try that and see what happens, post it up.
