    Wait you are doing your first oil change at 3k miles? Aren't you suppose to do the first one at 500 miles?

    the 2010 booklet states first oil change required at 3k, and then all other changes required every 3750 miles

    I believe that's called "overkill". As is the 3k interval oil change.

    Maybe it's different on a new engine than a rebuilt engine but I would like to get the metal scarping and the assembly lube left over out of the engine after 500 miles with an oil change.
