The AC Delco performance filters (like the one our car uses) is made by the same company that makes Mobil 1 filters. There is another thread in the maintenance section where someone cuts open a new Mobil 1 filter and a new AC Delco filter. They are identical on the inside.

Also, Wix makes a lot of filters for auto manufacturers and private label oil filters.

where can these filters be had from though? i've never seen them. Wix is readily available on nearly every street corner, and ya can't go wrong with them.

Walmart stocks the AC Delco filter for your LS3 or L99. I usually just buy two at once since they are often out of stock on them, and they have the Mobil 1 oil I use too.

It's just kids home from school needing some money. When I did my initial interview all they wanted to know was that you what a vehicle was and the very basics like it takes gas, you must change oil, tires rotated, etc
