try and use the search button but you can change your oil when ever you like it is up to and can change to synthetic when ever also

You can do a search on this subject, there are a a lot of views by a different guys and what they think. I personally change mine every 3 thousand miles . But to eachs own as you will see in the search

For me, every 3000 for the first 12000; every 4000 thereafter.

I talked to a Royal Purple rep and he said not to switch to synthetic till after 10k miles because the rings will not seat properly.

Ya know , i would think that, ihave heard that come up more than once on all kinds of automotive sites. I think i will just hang loose on that and make quite a few changes before i even consider it.
Royal Purple is great stuff ,i run that in my Cobra and will probly put it in my others gassers.
Thanx for the reply
:)
