Default I am the guinea pig

I have done one of the extremes in engine break in/oil change intervals. I changed my oil at 215 miles , and put in Mobil 1 synthetic. Then I changed my oil again at 998 miles, this time using Amsoil 10W-40.
There are many schools of thought (read: highly biased opinions) about proper break in and oil changes. If my motor blows up or consumes more oil than gas because the miraculously slippery synthetic oil didn't allow my engine to break in, I'll keep you posted.

Is the guy on the left pissed because the guy on the right looks like he's ****ting himself?

Thumbs up

Yep, just did it because I'm a obstinate fool. Just wanted to give the extreme paranoid school of thought a try. Of note, I sent in a sample of the factory fill when I changed it, the results indicated that I should change my oil at that time, due to elevated silicon (from seals or sealants) and water.
