Best lubricant for a high speed Hy-Vo chain drive

This may seem a little off topic for this section, but I intend to run basically a car engine oil. I did a fair bit of research previously into this topic and found that these Hy-Vo "silent chain" drives wear best in fairly low viscosity oils containing lots of moly or other metal to metal friction reducers (when running at high speed). GL-4 or GL-5 lubes are typcially not recommended. Which 10w30 (or 5w20) synthetic oil contains the highest amount of moly or other friction reducers?

Redline contains a high percentage of polyol esters for friction modification and high level (600 ppm) of MoTDC for Anti-Wear and anti-corrosion/anti-oxidant purposes.
