New here and to V6's, couple ?

Been lurking on here for a few days or so and I picked up a new 2014 black 6-spd with the Performance Package last week. This seems like a great site with lots of good info. So far, I'm amazed with the performance and handling of this car. I come from V8's in the past and I was always one of those guys who swore I'd never buy a V6 lol, but this one is pretty good. Already tinted it, pics to come shortly. My questions...
-How long to break in the first oil until switching to synthetic? I'm thinking somewhere around a thousand miles? I don't want to wait till 7500 miles with the original oil in there. My favorite that I also use in my Expedition is Amsoil.
-Exhaust. This is my daily driver, mostly highway for at least 30-40 mins so NO drone. Borla touring or Borla S or Corsa I have it narrowed down to. I can only find one sound clip of a Corsa. Any others out there?
I appreciate any input.
Thanks!

First off welcome to the site and the v6 world. You will get a million different opinions on when to change your oil but I did it at 3k miles and my car runs perfectly. Some will say 1k and others will say wait even longer than 3k. Anywhere in the 1k to 3k range you will be fine. As for the exhaust.. I have the borla s type and I absolutely love it. It's pretty loud when you get on it (my parents can hear me from a half a mile down the road) but cruising at highway speed you will barely notice it's not stock. It really comes down to preference but I have heard alot of exhausts in person and I think the s types are the perfect balance. Good luck with the car and happy modding!

Well I decided to go with Corsa. Only a few videos with the sound on YouTube, but they sound amazing! Hopefully they sound that good in person.

Breaking it in the way I did.

Do not drive a continuous speed. ( Forget cruise control for now)
Don't do hole shots.
Try not to brake hard.
At 3,500 miles go to your dealer and get first oil/filter change still using semi-synthetic. You want to get rid of the small crap that may have come from manufacturing. You want to go to your dealer so they can check everything out for you and have a nice record on your Mustang.
At 7,500 miles to 10,000 miles you can go to full synthetic. Rotate the tires.
( I rotate same side front to back. )

After the 3,500 miles you don't need to baby the car as you did up to that point.

One thing to think about is a good oil catch can for your first mod you do. I have the JLC and it is east to install and empty and comes with Ford lines to just plug it in. Installs in less the one minute. You can do that after your first oil/filter change.

+1 - Yup, Borla S-Type FTW! Every time I just start the car I'm just amazed, let alone when I step on it. They sound great and look beautiful. Friggen 4-1/2" chrome exhaust fills in the rear valance perfectly

Thanks for the input. I will leave it in for few thousand miles and I agree about getting everything checked out by the dealer. I'm only guilty of the constant speed, can't really help it because of driving to work. I hope I don't have buyers remorse not getting the Borla's!

Hey, whatever makes ya happy I spent months of research, listening to clips, going to car shows and get togethers. The best way is to see the exhausts in person and ask the owner to start their car for ya. Seeing and hearing in person is believing and the only way, forget the sound clips. They're nice to get ya started, but not to ultimately make your final decision.

I change mine every 2,500 miles. As I just turned a little over 5,000 miles, I had my second oil change.

On July 19th of this month, I will have had my V6 for two years. So most of my mileage is local driving only. I have another car for the winter. With last year's winter, my car was garaged almost four months.

As you can see by the responses, no are the same.

I change mine around every 6k. I'm not really worried cause I run full synthetic and the factory interval is 10k miles.

One day from now, she'll have been in my possession for 2 years, just over 27k miles on the clock.
