Thanks. Based on your analogy I'll be leaving it the way gm engineers designed it (and hope I don't regret it in a few years). Out of curiosity, do you have either or both?Oh boy, here we go.
The best analogy I can give to you is some people eat certain foods, but others will not eat it because they are concerned for long-term health benefits. Others eat whatever they want and don't give it a second thought.
There is no way in the world to get people to agree on what foods should not be consumed. Forget about it. You can never get one clear answer on that.
Will oil mist in the air intake at the rate of what is being caught presently by catch cans be bad for your engine? Some will say yes, some will say no. Decide for yourself what you want to do.
I don't have the car yet. I'm waiting on a Z06. My plan, at the moment, is to get both. I also am very picky about what I eat. The thought process for me is the same for both cases.Thanks.

Hi Nick,This is such a strange question to ask. But I have the same question. So I searched the forum: So many different responses to the same question for the same car and engine type. So I took it to Chevy, had them change the oil, and they said that they put in 10 quarts. I got the $100 invoice for the change and it says 10 quarts on the invoice. So I guess I am going with 10 quarts. But they said to make sure I pull BOTH drain plugs (not just the one up front) and that I allow it about 20 minutes to drain. Then they said to put in the new oil slowly, allowing in 10 minutes to drain the fill tank before measuring it. They said to heat the engine up, turn the car off, come back in 5-7 minutes, and then measure the oil level with the dipstick. Then add only what is needed to fill it up to, but not over, the fill line.
They said to let the oil drain for at least 5 minutes after I take off the oil filter also.
Maybe this level of waiting is over-kill. I am not sure, but I am going to follow these recommendations to the letter in my Z51.
Oh, and I see the super-charger has to have its own oil change as well, but not nearly as often as the engine oil.
Does this sound right to the forum dudes and dudettes?
