I change it when the car tells me to.

The only exception was when I went to Mid-Ohio for an HPDE event and I regularly was near 300 degrees of oil temp, then I changed it right after.

I do every 5K miles, keep in mind the turbo uses the same oil and spools at 200k rpm. My dealership even recommended me to not go over 5k miles without an oil change. My last turbo car i changed every 3k miles but it did not use synthetic oil.
