Exclamation Noobie to the V-8's

Is it better to have full synthetic oil in V8s??
How do glass pack mufflers with kooks long tube headers work out i was thinking of just going highflow cats or just straight piped all the way from the headers back??

A lot of people will give you some very specific answers with the oil question. I will be using Mobil 1, the recommended oil for the Camaro by GM.

As far as the exhausts, I'll leave that to someone with better information.

The Mobil1 he uses and GM recommends/requires is full synthetic. best bet is at Costco, couple bucks cheaper.

This means that if you install long tube headers on your car, you will not be able to pass a smog inspection.
