I use mobile 1 15w-50 but by accident my mechanic put some thinner oil. i did notice that the engine spooled quicker. i have also researched the disadvantages...the s-14 runs so hot that breaks down the oil quicker(you could prevent this by changing the oil in frequent intervals)and it may become so thin that it won't protect as well. the chain rattle that you have is probably a sign of this
