first oil change???

Not sure what everyone else is doing out there but I've had a couple friends recomend doing my first oil change at 500 miles to get out any of the metal shavings and such that may occur from engine brake in. Right now I'm sitting at 486 miles and will soon put it on blocks for the winter (she don't even see the likes of rain). So I was curious of what everyone else is doing?

I'll chime in here. Yes, I agree change at 500 miles, and get on synthetic.

Go get yourself a magnetic drain plug as they left them out on the GTO's

Even on your 2nd change you'll still get some sludge and shavings
