Question so how much is it going to cost to get an oil change on this beast

V6 takes 7.6qts. Not sure if it comes with synthetic or not?
how much does the v8 take?

what do you think the dealer or a reg mech will charge for a oil change?

I don't do mine on the Corvette because its a once or twice a year thing and its too damn hard to get under or get the car high enough.

I don't do mine on the Honda because its so cheap and easy to have someone else do it.

I do mine in the truck sometimes, but

I ALWAYS do my own on the Camaro! Good bonding time with the old girl indeed!

I want a paper trail at the dealer for warranty purposes. I"ll be the tech doing it anyway. I'll make sure I always go over it with a fine comb.
