Question Dumb Newbie Oil Question

Okay so I am new to owning a turbo vehicle so I might have missed something, and at the moment I don't want to look too dumb talking to my local Subaru service dept. so I thought I would ask you guys. With a vehicle equip with a turbo is the amount of mileage you need to get your oil changed increased. This last Friday I had my oil change and on the sticker, the mechanic put my next oil change at 06-03 or mileage 2101, and I already have close to 1800 miles on the car. I always thought it was 3 month or 3000 miles which ever came first. But being that its a turbo I thought it might be different than other cars. Maybe someone could help me out thanks.

Depends on how anal you are. I have 2000 miles on the clock and its been changed twice (with synthetic) but thats because i am a tech. and have acsess to a rack. You should be fine with every 3k miles.

"natural is nice but i'd rather be forced and blown"
