Default Amsoil

Hi Everyone,
kinda had same question about first oil change, no way i am going to wait till 8K as per manual...
so, sounds like 3K is the magic number here.

Anyone have anything to say about Amsoil XL 5W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil (XLMQT) oil? Does it really last for 10,000 miles?
Amsoil lists SAE 5W-20 Signature Series 100% Synthetic Motor Oil (ALMQT) as the best oil for the hemi but it's $7.85 per quart, is it worth it?

Also what oil filters do you guys recommend?
What's better Mopar, Amsoil, or Wix?
Amsoil - EAO11-EA - $13.15
Wix - 57899-EA - $4.95
Mopar - ? part number ? - Cost?
