Found this info online, "CK-4 and FA-4 oils both are designed to improve resistance to aeration and have increased shear stability"
It don't help much on your question but it's something.

I just stocked up 6 gallons of Delo CJ when it was on sale over the last 9 months.
IF and WHEN Delo Synth. gets down in price, I'd give it a go.

Last oil change before a 3000 mile trip. No problems.
