Cologne v6 2.9 change to synthetic?

I have an 88 2.9 v6 cologne. Dealt with the whole head cracking. Replaced them and now I have some valve train noise. Any advice on that matter? I have read that synthetic oil is a must. Is this true? Does any one recommend it? If so, any preference?

Thank You

I don't know if it's a must or not... but I'm using Castrol Syntec with no problems in my truck.
