Oil question

I have been using 5w-20 royal purple in my 2004 Mustang GT (86k miles) with a k&n oil filter and I've been changing it every 3k to 4k miles. My question.. Is this over kill? I usually use Z-Max in my other cars but for this car I've only added in Lucas oil stabilizer. To my knowledge it hasn't burned off or leaked any oil since I've had it. Also I was told that it has only had synthetic oil for the life of the car (or so I hope).

You can go at least 6000 between changes!..

I've only done 2 changes since I've had the car but the oil started looking dirty after 3k. I'm paranoid about doing anything that might jeopardize the performance/life of the engine.
