I don't know about that, but it will surely make your car run better. Probably add a little performance, but not by adding hp. It's just like cleaning your air filter once in a while, you'll get better gas mileage (noticeable if you haven't cleaned it in like a year).

I think he meant change oil when your car has 0 miles on it at the dealership before taking it to the street...

Isn't that what you do in gran turismo 3, to get more horsepower? But no i beleive thats the break in oil, and should be replaced when required.

in grand tourismo if you got your oil changed before driving it, you would get an extra 50 horse power or something like that. I wouldnt suggest you do that with a real car though. The oil in the car when it is brand new is ment to break in the engine and should be changed anywhere from 3-5 thousand miles
