camaroman7d I agree with the above post.

Are you sure it's not Moly Lube?

There will be some wear in a new engine and the oil should be changed shortly after break in.

engineguy Robbie,
Are you sure that it is metal? If there was any metal in the engine, it would collect in the bottom of the oil pan. A new engine really should not have any metal floating around in it. Change oil and filter; then install a magnetic drain plug. Any metalic junk floating around in the engine will be trapped by the magnetic plug, but you should not see much on it and certainly no large chunks.
