Oil change recommendation for 2012 3.6l.

Hello all. New member here, and I have a question regarding changing the factory fill oil in my 3.6 pentastar at about 1000 miles and replacing it with synthetic.
Would this be OK or should I replace with dino and run it for a couple thousand miles and then go with synthetic. Any advice will be most welcome.
Thanks in advance.

why dont you just run the factory fill until the oil change nag comes up and then switch to synthetic? that way you can be sure you are fully broken in and all extra metal is gone....

My first oil change was when the evic told me to at about 8K miles- (I do all highway driving). Got my first free oil change from dealer and will switch to synthetic on my next oil change which I assume will be about 16K.
