Default Oil weight

I just bought my type s a few months ago and i performed an oil change but put 10w-30 instead of the 5 it ask for. Didnt realize it since the guy i bought it from said he just changed it with 10-30. Am i loosing horsepower with higher weight oil in there? If so apx how much? Any other comments would be helpful

I use 10-30 in the summer months. I live in Florida. I believe 5-30 is for all temps and 10-30 is above freezing.
