which oil?

I was considering changing my oil for the first time at 1500 miles and was wondering; does everyone start running a full synthetic oil on there first oil change? or staying with that blend GM puts in? I've also done a few burnouts (couldn't help it) starting after 200miles on car how bad do you guys think I have ruined anything?

I switched over to Mobil 1 at 1500 miles. And don't worry...although your burnouts were not break-in protocol...lol...your Camaro will be fine. I was very hard on Envy during the break-in period because she's tough and GM didn't build me a glass car.

Please tell me why eveyone had a hard-on for M1??

First it's not a Full Synthetic! It's really a blend. It's aprox 12% synthetic.

It's a PAO III not a POA IV which is a full synthetic. Amsoil is a base IV synthetic oil.

Second M1 5W30, last time I checked doesn't even meets GM's standards. Do some research before you say you're using a full synthetic oil.

And I use royal purple. A FULL SYnTHeTiC.

Mobil 1 for me. I have used it for years in various cars and never had engine trouble due to break down of the oil. Amsoil and Royal Purple are both great choices to, but why change when Mobil 1 has always done what I need it to do......PROTECT my engine.

I chose most of my mods before purchasing my SGM last year. So I told the dealership what I wanted, gave them a list and they made it all happen. They subcontracted most of the work out to Quantum Performance and Classic Soft Trim...and it all took over 3 months...but it was all done before I took final delivery.
