    So how much do you put in. I think I once read in a shop that it was 6.5 qtrs. due to the oil filter being empty. Any thoughts??

    I saw a post where a guy was talking about running a bit more than full because the ls1 needs more than it says on the stick but I find that hard to believe. I fill mine till it says full no more no less which is like the man says 5.5 quarts.

    Those that are paying up the ass for Mobil 1...stop. It isn't 100% synthetic anymore....sadly.

    I am using the last bit of Mobil 1 I have left for my daily driver....'01 Grand Am GT. Delco filters. Every 3,000 miles regardless of time.

    Trans Am is getting it every 3 months in the summer. 5w-30 VP synthetics. Delco filter. It gets a change before winter...and maybe 200 miles throughout winter, then gets another change in spring.
