The Bus is in warm climate California so maybe 30 weight? Right now the oil in the engine is crystal clear.
I would call the shop that installed the engine and put in the same stuff they did.
I know there’s some break in oils out there with high amounts of ZDDP. Probably best to talk to the engine rebuilder and see what they recommend, that thing is brand new. For the long run Rotella or Delo pretty close. You can read for years what people’s opinions are on oil. Do a internet search.
