Question Oil system

IS the new camaro going to use a dry-sump system like on the Z06 and ZR1 or the the traditional wet-sump setup?

But on a side note it is equipped with a oil cooler, which I think is a first for a Camaro. Nice to see Gm protecting our new drivetrain.

i havent ever paid to get my oil changed... or much of anything else on my car. bout the only thing I think I have ever paid someone else to do (besides build my transmission) is my wheels/tires and alignment.

but thats just me (and probably a few other members on here) and I cant afford to be taking my cars to places to get fixed.

yeah, guess I'll be doing this car myself. It'll be more than 80. Its 80 and change to get an oil change in my Cobalt SS. 6.5 qts of Mobil 1 and filter. So, guess its time to get a floor jack, stands and a drain pan.
