It's very easy to do! Here are a couple of threads to get you started:
Oil Changing Procedures
1st oil change
Best advice I can offer is to make sure you have a container large enough to collect the oil in. Make sure you handle this container with it's very easy to spill a ***** load of oil! The biggest mistake made is putting too much oil back in and not following the proper procedures for checking your oil. When I change oil, I typically add 9.5 quarts, get the car up to operating temps, check my oil on level ground, engine idling. I usually end up at 10 quarts to get it to the level I like. In a Turbo my preference is to keep the oil level just above the lowest line...not quite in the middle of the two marks on the stick.
