If you are putting more than 8 quarts in, then you are putting too much. Your owners manual is very clear.

Amsoil is not offically licensed, therefore, they are not on GM's list. Amsoil says on their bottles that they meet the spec, and everyone thinks that is good enough. Sorry, it isn't.

You don't have to use that oil. Any oil that is dexos certified is acceptable. That AC Delco dexos oil is only a synblend. Use Mobil 1.

Mobil 1 is dexos certified. You were better off with that. The AC Delco dexos they conned you into using is a syn-blend.

You guys kill me. I don't care what you've "heard"! Read your owners manual! It clearly states 8 quarts for the V8 and 6 quarts for the V6.

dexos is a cert not an oil. The 11's take an oil that is dexos certified. The AC Delco brand that is dexos certified is a semi-synthetic, but all other dexos certified oils are full synthetic.

It's a semi-synthetic. It meets the dexos spec for warranty purposes, but that doesn't mean much as far as performance. The most recent UOA's confirm that. So, I would recommend Mobil 1 because...

Wrong. AC Delco brand dexos 1 oil is semi-synthetic and shouldn't be used in LS3 cars. All other oils on the market that are dexos 1 certified are full synthetic.
