300 miles.

Then I had a stroker crank, big bore pistons, ported heads, and cams installed.

Then I ran that for 500 miles or so then changed engine oil.

1000 for me. I figure a 1000 miles is already sooner than it really needs to be done so why do it even sooner than that? However if you think it should be done sooner than just do it for your own piece of mind and don't go by what the book, or anyone here, says.
