[Biturbos4] Synthetic oil - frequency of changes

I use Mobil 1 and change it every 3000 miles.  I admit... it's overkill...
but I view it as cheap insurance.  My Corvette Z06 gets oil changed before
every track event (due to high oil temps), but my personal rules:

Forced induction engines (or super high revving engines), every 3000 miles.
Normally aspirated, every 5000 miles.

It works for me.  One of the cars I work on is a 2001 or 2002 Passat (V6,
AWD... the Audi A6 driveline).  It currently has a really strong engine...
even after 235,000 miles.
