What engine oil?

So my engine blew on a dyno and I had been using Liquimoly. The oil had less than 5000 miles on it but I shot a rod through the block and my piston exploded. Literally. Rod bearings were never done but car only has 71k miles. I'm reluctant to put more Liquimoly in it, especially after finding that the oil seems to be oriented on additive sales. I also was using Ceratec. While it's not completely on the oil, oil starvation is what caused the failure. I might add it was only the 6 piston that this happened to.

I've been thinking Castrol or Motul. What do you guys suggest? Do you have oil lab reports?
