AMS Oil

Coming up on 5k mi and my first oil change. I am going with synthetic. I run AMS in my motorcycle, love it and have heard good things about it in cars and trucks. Anyone have experience with it in the Tacoma? Thanks!

I am running the Amsoil 5w- 30 ASL in my 2.7L, but I only have about 1000 miles on the first fill. Working great so far, easy cold starts and not burning a drop.

I will do a UOA when I change it out to see if I can go more miles than I did with it. I'll probably change it out at around 8k this first time, and go from there.
