it says right in the manual, use premium. anything less will kill the engine in the long run, burn more gas, and hinder performance

deffinitely use high-test because the LS1 is a 10.1:1 compression motor that will cause detonation (pinging) when using anything else. If you care about your car at all and want to keep it I would put the good stuff in it99 Trans Am M6

Super is usually 20¢ more than regular which works out to ~$3 a fill up extra. Not that big a deal if you ask me.
