Hey I am converting form a 97 Vdub, to a 2003 Xtreme. So far, the Xtreme in the one week of owning it, is 10x funner. 4.3L's are pretty quick compared to a VW. Anywho, I bought this truck brand new, only had 172 original miles on it. My question is, when should I service the first oil change, and how many miles on average does it take to break in a new engine. Probably stupid questions, but I know nothing of new vehicles. Another question I have is, does the K&N intake with the Gibson cat-back make a huge difference. Just curious if it is worth spending the money.

Change the oil at 3,000 miles. I think after about 500 miles it should be well enough broken in. As for the intake and exhaust, I have the AEM Brute Force and it made a big difference. You can definetly tell it is there.

A good intake and a catback exhaust are good first mods!!
