Not jacking the thread but should go nicely with the topic.

Really? The 6.0L in the G8 takes 9 qts. I would have thought it would be the same or a little more. Cheaper oil changes. LOL

Technically 8.6 so you'll have to buy 9 quarts.

Here's a previous thread about it.

I use mobil 1 in everything I drive allready, I was hoping they would put it in the Camaro. We will just have to watch the oil change guys to make sure they don't spin off the tires while they are at it!! Anyone spins the tires it will be me!!!

Has a v6 owner received their Camaros yet? Thought it's been all V8s.
I'm curious myself... as I wait...

But wasn't it said that dyno oil is better than syntec oil during the break in period?

That's old school. These newer engines come from the factory with synthetic.
Not a problem.
