Default switching oil weight

well im at 50k on my sti, and it was suggested to me by a few folks to run a heavier weighted oil. maybe bumping up to a 10w-30 or 15w-50 or so. its time for me to change my oil, and im just wondering if i should or shouldnt do it. will a thicker oil not be consumed by the 2.5 or maybe not as much as the 5w-30?? i am curious.

btw, i did search for this topic and all i found were topics about the sti eating oil (which mine does as well) and people toasting their motors for not having/adding oil because of the consumption.
