Took my wife's Lexus into Oil Can Henry's today (chain car lube place) for an oil change. Just out of curiosity, I asked if they had the specs on a 2014 Corvette Stingray. Mechanic told me they had 9.8 quarts listed for the Z51 and they would use full synthetic Castrol Titanium, which would be $148 for the oil change. He knew it was a dry sump and to get the oil up to temperature before checking the level. Also said they would have to drain it for 15 minutes. FYI.

It doesn't take 15 minutes to drain if it's warmed up and you pull both drain plugs.

Just passing along some info, it would be warmed up since you have to drive it there.

Not really. 10 qts of top shelf synthetic = $90, good filter = $10 plus 1/2 hr labor. Add tax, EPA fees, etc. and $148 is reasonable.

Since I change my own oil, purchase my own Mobil 1 and filter, still a bit costly for me.
