First Oil Change Time

It's time. '04 5.7 LS1. I was thinking Mobil 1 5W30 w/ Mobil 1 filter. Any suggestions?

Have you ever thought that the people you talk to online are perfectly normal....and that YOU are the psychopath?

I have also heard RP works better for manual trans.

good choice...the K&N oil filters are rated highly as well...have been using them on my LS-1 Vette for a couple years...I used to use the AC Delco Gold (UPF) but read that while filtering the best, it was more restrictive (DUH!) so I stopped as it raised oil pressure a bit...good luck, I am due for the first oil change on mine as well...

oil change

your 1st change,,, how many miles are on it.. I did my 1st change at ZERO miles.. day of delivery I told the dealer to change the oil because it comes from the factory with Mobile One,, with synthetic oil.. the car will never break in properly. I did another change at 500 miles, again at 1500, again at 2500 and then I went to Royal Purple at 3500

I would suggest using the search button. This topic has only been brought up five billion times.

Switching from dino to a synthetic is a good move. Did it on my '04, too. What was really interesting is that my temp gauge used to go to halfway between hot and cold on dino -- then dropped to 3/8 after going to synthethic. That's amazing.
