Synthetic oil with DPF delete

I am thinking about switching to amsoil 5w-40 premium synthetic oil and I was just curious on how many miles you guys are getting out of synthetic oil before changing when you are DPF/CAT deleted. Right now im just using conventinal oil and I am changing it religiously at 5000 miles not a mile over.
