It works awesome, 15k OCI, Amsoil 0w-30 SSO & Ea oil filters. Stage 2, 18.5 peak boost. Almost 204k on original motor & VF-40 turbo.

Depends on which Amsoil motor oil & Ea oil filters you are using. The 25k oil in for Normal Service (basically N\A motors) driving conditions. Turbos or force induction motors. Fall under Server Service. The same is now rated for 15K & oil with Ea oil filters.

SERVICE LIFE
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil is recommended for extended drain intervals in unmodified(1), mechanically sound(2) gasoline-fueled vehicles as follows:
Normal Service(3) Up to 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first.
Severe Service(4) Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first.
In all non-gasoline-fueled vehicle applications, extend the oil change interval according to oil analysis or follow the OEM* drain interval.
