My SEL V6 now has 2400 miles on it and will be up to 2500 by the time i change the oil this weekend. I was wondering if it is too soon to switch to synthetic. Should I run dino-oil for anothr 2500 miles? Also, what filter would work best with the synthetic?

I used Havoline 5w20 (Very High Moly containt)for the first 3changes in my Milan 2.3 and my wifes Freestyle 3.0
At 5000 miles I went with 5w20 Pennzoil Platium and Motorcraft filters. (They are very good filters) and no questions about warranty should something come up.
You don't need a special filter when you use synthetic oil.
You can use any name brand synthetic you want. They are all very good.
Or you could use Motorcraft 5w20 which is a synthetic blend and gets very high marks in the oil world.
You can use synthetic oil at 2500 miles with no problem.
