Because all cars and all engines are the same. No need for additional info.

Get an oil analysis. Might be nothing. Might be a crap rebuilt. Parts have nothing to do with it, they just make it more expensive if the rebuild is done poorly.

All im trying to figure out if it is normal to see metal dust there's not a lot and only has had the oil changed once just trying to see if this is from the ring seating and the new parts breaking in. no need to bash me and whats auto?

The Rebuild is good whole thing was done by a good friend of mine i do know that breaking in a motor will create some dust from the rig seating but is it normal to see it after the first oil change...Am i just paranoid

You should invest in a magnetic oil pan plug this will have the (slight) shavings from the break it from being dispersed though your motor via oil pump. You should have changed the oil more frequently than you have due to any sort of shavings being in your oil, usually at 50 miles, 100, 250, 500, 1000, 2000, then on a regular cycle as usual.
