Default 05 STI, First Oil Change 1k or 3k?

Hey guys,

I have an 05 STI and I am at 1500 Mi and I have been searching when the MFG recommended Change is. I can only find 3k in the book, but refers to 3.0L motor. Does anyone have a definate answer from the MFG? I feel I should change it now since the motor is broken in, but some say that the oil they put in is a break in oil.
Also, this question is going to start a stir, but I want to go over to Synthetic when is a good time to go? I live in the New England area.

Thanks in advance.
