I have to chuckle.
The car mags take junkyard 5.3s with 150,000 miles, slap on a Chinese turbo, and keep cranking up the boost to 700 hp and it doesn't blow.
And this guy is worried about Group III vs IV and V.

We are fortunate to get GIII/GIV/GV blends for $25 a 5 qt jug ... enjoy the $50/gallon lube

Do you really believe it makes a difference?

Even oils like German Castrol or Amsoil Signature that have large percentages of Group IV base oil use group II and/or group III in their formulation because they hold onto the additive package better than Group IV or V.

I'll run my "blends" of group III, IV, and V all year long and know I'll never see an oil related failure.

Heard that - got $12/gallon Delvac 1300 in my 5.3L - what expensive super juice will protect it better?

Red Line, Motul, and Liqui-Moly should have something you like. Plus, the L-Moly is either available at your local Napa, or they can order it for you smile

Just another day with OCD on BITOG.

The OP should change all fluids out at 1,500 miles....."just to be sure!"

You could use the cheapest Dexos 0w-20 available and run it for the full length of the OLM (which on the 5.3s is about ~7500 in ideal conditions) and get 300k plus out of that motor. What more are you looking for in a "true" synthetic?

No kidding. It's a gosh darn Chevy. It'll run on salad dressing, let alone group III synthetics.
