look for Dmaxallitech's schedule he gave us. In some ways there's less to do, other ways more. Just follow his schedule and you can't go wrong.

I use the hours meter as a gauge more so than the mileage I drive.


100 hours or so on the oil and I change it out with the filter.


Idling a lot, running a Box or Tuner, etc.


I never heard of an engine blowing up because it was over maintained.


Also a good idea is a secondary fuel filter. I am running the Nicktane pre-oem set-up with ZERO problems.


Maintenance is up to you, IMHO oil is cheaper than a motor, clean fuel will hopefully save the injectors for a long time to come.
