   Nebulous is the operative word.  If the ZDDP additive is a good idea 
(no argument from me) why not leave it in there?  I've not seen any 
arguments for there being too much ZDDP.  I knew a guy who used a 
magnetic drain plug and changed the filter after the original run-in. 
His idea was to remove the metal deposits created by the original 
scuffing-in of sliding parts.

   Anyhoo, it's not the cost of the filter and oil; it's the necessity 
of the two (extra) oil/filter changes I'm skeptical about.
