V6 oil filter same as Cadillac 3.6?

Tried finding an oil filter at the local autozone....dont carry one for a 2010 Camaro V6, but does carry the Caddy 3.6 filter. Anyone know if they are the same?

Look up the 3.6 Cadillac CTS filter in the book at the store, compare the numbers and see if it matches the filter number you need! Problem solved.... no?

I'd be interested in a picture of a v-6 cartridge after the initial change at break-in to see how much metal is in it. Any DIY-ers out there able to do this?

If you can see metal in it you're probably in trouble.

not neccessarily. its not uncommon for some shavings to end up in the filter on the first oil change. just part of the engine break-in

Maybe 30+yrs ago.
Today the engine is so well engineered and manufactured that is a thing of the past. Thats why the manufacturers don't even recommend an early oil change after the first 500 miles anymore.
