Question what oil to use for my 09 V6

I just picked up an 2009 EX-L v6 and it's almost time for the first oil change.
I was thinking of using (PENNZOIL FULLY SYNTHETIC) 5w-20 that is, but I was also thinking about (Mobile 1 fully synthetic).
what do you guys prefer?

Its not what we prefer, You have a new warranty to think about. You are best to use a engine oil that is Honda approved as Honda is getting very strict on this oil thing. So make sure it has Honda approval code on it first. Mobile 1 does and yes you can use the 5-20. I am using a 0-30 for just a little extra protection.(Amsoil)

I use mobil 1. I am sure any other major brand synthetic will do. They are all better than any conventional oil. 5w-20 is what my 7th gen calls for. Is it the same for 08-09?
