I have heard that myself Jarvis and it'* makes no sense whatsoever. I ran the OEM oil for the first 1000 miles and dumped it out for Castrol Syntec. As far as name brand synthetics go, I believe they are aboiut equal. Take your pic and stick with 5W30. The all aluminum N* engine allows for oil to be used for longer periods.8 to 9000 miles. My oil monitor went to 15% left at 7000 miles and I changed it. It looked surprisingly light for the mileage. And I drive real hard.
I let the dealer do oil changes, the K&N website will have the filter listed.
