I just go until the warning system tells me its time for a change. I use mobil1 also, but im gonna switch over to Amsoil's turbo formulation next time.

just my opinion but you should never run your oil for the extended. and even for synthetic i change it at 3000.

This is something that I wanted to find out too... I do mine every 6,000 miles, but I might be wrong.

So that one is specified for turbos...The viscosity seems a little weak, being that in 2 days, the temperature here went from 75 and sunny to 10 and ice.

I personally go around every 4k miles. Remember, its not the oil that breaks down over time. Its the additives in the oil that break down.
