Are you 100% certain the car comes with Mobil 1 [I]synthetic?[I] I would be willing to bet when that motor is first run, it does not have synthetic. If you know anything about new engines, rings have to wear and seal, valves have to seat. If you use synthetic during break-in, it us unlikely these things will happen properly. I have been working with race engines long enough to know this and it would surprise me if they are using synthetic oil at start up. Recommending you use it does not mean it has it in now. I don't know.
