DrD has it right. Sorry to spoil the party but yes you can and should change over to Mobil 1 around 1000 miles. It won't hurt your turbo engine in any way whatsoever and will confer so many positive benefits we don't have space to go into them here. I changed mine over actually at 640 miles and at 25K the engine is happy as a clam, runs strong as hell, burns NO oil between changes and in short has no problems or issues whatsoever. (Knock on wood ) The thing about flushing out possible machining contaminants and loose gasket materials in a new engine is very important--you don't want those foreign materials circulating in your oil for 3000 miles, no way. Great way to put a lot of unnecessary "mileage" on your brand new engine.
