What's wrong with what you are currently using? Why 5W and not 0W? Sticking to your list, I choose the M1 oil and filter. Deviating, I would use the M1 filter with either 0W-20 AFE or EP. especially Ohio this time of year.

Riggaz, the bearings will only draw from the pressurised galleries the oil that they need to replace side leakage. The artifact of this is increased gallery pressure (or oil pressure) as viscosity goes up. They largely self compensate, and thicker i

Weasley hi, How is possible for oil of 2.8 cP to meet minimum standard of 3.5 cP for C3 oils. Surely you meant 3.8 cP oil to meet both standards. But still there is need for fuel economy requirements of C2 oils that 3.5 cP cannot meet.

Because the HTHS requirements are minima. C2 requires 2.9 cP minimum whereas C3 requires 3.5 cP minimum. If you have an oil of, say, 2.8 cP then it meets both requirements.

GM/Volvo Transmission Save your money. Due to what Volvo wanted it weakened the unit up as compared to the 4T65E/4T65EHD used in GM cars, and those are ok, but are not bullet proof either.
