I've used Valvoline for YEARS in my other vehicles and my families rides...changed ~3500-4000mi and been problem free.

I'd have NO problem using their Syn oil...hell I may try some out here. I run Mobil 1 in my WRX and Z71 but Valvoline 5W30 dino in all the rest...

i think the point here is that you're getting $28 worth of synthetic oil for free. i run 7500 mile dran intervals with 5w30 and it comes out clean, if you're changing synthetic at 3000 miles you're wasting your money.

you noticed any gains or anything with the k&n oil filter
My favorite thing about the K&N oil filter is the nut welded on the bottom. Its a 3/4 if I recall correctly. You can take the filter on and off with a standard socket wrench. That alone is worth the price difference.

I push syn oil to 10K...with a filter change and add a quart at 5k mi. Done this for 20K mi now w/o a problem.

Changing dino at 3K is a waste, syn at 3K is even worse.
