Default High Performance Engine Oil

OK Cost is not a huge issue (although no more than 15 a quart would be nice)
These will all be in 5w-20/5w-30 since i hear those two are relatively interchangeable
I am looking for the best oil out there but I still want it to last 5000 miles or so.

1. Mobil 1
2. Amsoil XL
3. Amsoil race
4. Royal Purple
5. Royal Purple XPR Race
6. Castrol Edge
7. Redline
8. Eneos

A 2008 Accord has an oil-life monitor, and ANY ONE of those oils should out-last the monitor. In other words, you should let the monitor go all the way down to zero. That should be easily beyond 5k miles.
