No stomping ... But close. See bottom of page

I also run a new engine very hard for proper break-in while others like to baby it for 1000 miles. To each their own though...
If you "...run a new engine very hard...", I totally agree, there will be "...a lot of extra metal particles floating around in the oil...".

It would not surprise me that you knew more than them. I stopped going to those quick oil change places a long time ago. Them touching anything on my vehicle would make me very nervous.

V8 uses a spin on the v6 uses a cartridge style.
