Not many options for the V6
Purolator L25274
Fram CH8765
And the K&N
I'm sure Napa has one but I cant find the part.
I'm thinking the Purolator or K&N

Is the oil change procedure with these cart filters as simple as it is with single piece the disposable type?

Yep, when you take the engine cover off there is a round aluminum cylinder next to the driver side cam cover. Unscrew the top. Pull the cartridge out and drop the new one in.
Still have to get under the car to drain the pan.

Also DO NOT go by the oil life monitor. As some CTS owners have found out the hard way it's too long. My service tech told me "you should change your oil probably 3 times before the monitor tells you to." He told me they've had cars come on on the hook that wouldn't hardly turn over. Changed the oil (or goo) and problem solved. Mine gets fresh oil every 3000.

While I agree with not relying on the oil life monitor. The owners of those cars that came in on the hook obviously did not change there oil in a very long time. Oil is alot better now than it was back in the day. Good oil does not break down until around 5000 miles. I will still change it out every 3000, but just saying. Also we should really be monitoring our oil by hours instead on mileage anyway.

Speaking of oil life, the amount of oil in these new aluminum block engines should extend the life simply because more oil will result in less breakdown. The oil should not be particularly contaminated after only 3,000 miles unless there are other problems. Generally speaking, it's the additive package that breaks down not the molicules of the oil anyway. So more volume of oil should equal longer life just like on the bid diesels.
Thoughts on that?

I tend to go with the oil life monitor. Given the quality of the oil today, machining tolerances, and the expectation of getting at least 150k miles out of a car, companies would be screwing themselves otherwise. I run Mobil 1 and either Wix/PureOne/Bosch filters (availability or vehicle). If I was running cheap oil and filters from the local express lube, I might be more concerned.

Just passing on what I've learned in 5 years of owning a 3.6VVT.
If you know a friendly GM Tech (especially at a Cadillac dealership) ask them. They will tell you that the oil life monitor is one thing. Marketing.
I know my oil (regardsless of the brand) goes in clear and comes out black at 3500 miles. It's contaminants not viscosity breakdown. What gas you use (and the state you life in, we have no gas quaility testing in OR and the gas is crap) will have more of a factor than oil brand. I've run Mobil1, Redline, Valviline Syn. The viscosity is excellant I'm sure I could (and did in my first 3.6) run it longer, but it still gets dirty.

It wasn't a Camaro engine. It was a Nissan 4 cylinder. I used Castrol GTX 10 w 30 and changed oil and filter every 6K miles and got over 350K on the engine with no smoking when I sold it.

I was thinking of going every 4K miles with this engine and sticking with Castrol GTX. Is synthetic oil required for this engine?

Thanks

Thanks for the reply.
Thats sounds like a Good plan...............

if that is unusual maybe someone else will have some input.......
I guess the oil is just doing it's job.

BTW.. Before changing the oil, looking at dipstick it didn't look black at all.
I guess because the oil is very thin.
When draining it then it looked black.
After changing & looking at the oil I was glad I didn't wait till say 2k or 3k to change it.

I may now wait for "change oil soon message "to to come on & then change it........
I will see how many miles that will be.....

I checked out quite a few filters for my current vehicles and k&n, fram, and ACdelco were all in the 95-97% filteration range. Mobil1 has a filteration of 99.2%. The puralator one that I went with is 99.9% filteration. I would def look to see if they make one yet for the camaro. I plan on running Mobil1 performance with the puralator filter. I want the best possible filteration.

Do any of the 3.6 filters come with new housing cap gasket(O-ring), my fist one didn't. GM parts direct shows it but don't list it as available. They won't last for ever
