Very debateable. All I can say is "you can never change you oil too often"!

If ya go by oil life computer I still have 70% left with 2k miles

My dealer told me it was too early too. Sorry! Change it anyway. I wanted to be sure all the metal shavings were out like everyone else.

Isn't there special break in oil from factory in there?

Is this the same one who only puts 6 qts in on a 8 qt change ?:facepalm:

I was also told the same thing by the dealership...:word:

Cheap insurance & piece of mind! :) I'm VERY glad I did it around 1200 miles and took out the first batch of metal shavings...

I dont care what the dealer says. Anytime ive dynoed our race engines for years we do three oil changes on the dyno and get shavings out. So i will change with regular oil at 500, 1000, 1500. Then every 3000 with synthetic Royal Purple from now on. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Oil is a small price to pay for your engine.

I changed mine after 30 miles of hard accelerations.
I will change it again after 500 miles (today likely).
Oil changes are cheap.

Dealer also says you should pay over MSRP for a Camaro.....I caught a catastrophe happening in a 396 I built due to faulty cam bearings, caught it early at the 500 mile non detergent oil change and saved a $3500 build!
