101 Projects Book Oil Recommendation

Noticed in the 101 Boxster Projects book it recommends the following:

"On cars not equipped with Variocam Plus (2006 and earlier), use of a 15W50 or 20W50 provides a much higher film strength, which will improve internal bearing life considerably".

So is anyone actually running these oils? Notice anything different?
