I just did my first change. I wanted to do it earlier but it wound up at 1,300 miles.
I upgraded to a Purolator Pure 1 PL20195 oil filter. The stock filter is a Motorcraft fl910s which is the smaller version of the Motorcraft fl400s and the PL20195 is an upgraded more efficient version of the fl400s. Purolator makes the Motorcraft filters so its almost a factory upgrade.
The hard part is getting the filter in place, the oil/water heat exchanger hoses get in the way but after you get the filter past that it fits fine. Even the small filter has that issue getting in and out.
One minor change I did was rotate a spring clip on one of the heat exchanger hoses, that gave it more space and less likely to bust a knuckle on when you are removing a filter.
I'm going to do a 1,000 mile weekend road trip soon. My next change will be after that, hopefully before 3,500 miles, then I'll switch to a 5,000 mile interval on oil and maybe 10,000 on filters if they look good after 5,000.
