What is spec oil per mfr for this vette? 5w30?

What have you used before? Id go with the Castrol, simply because of price. I dont think RL would provide better protection. Try to get your oil hot once in awhile.

Not sure it's going to quiet it down much, but I'd go the 0W-40 with the excellent pour point...

I would personally run a 0w-40, also, what do you do with the car? Daily driver, a sunday cruiser, a track car?

In this instance the grade is irrelevant, the HTHS of the Redline is higher by a bit. I'd go with which ever one you perceive to be quieter since that is your main concern.

Both are excellent choices, Redline just quiets engines down good as anything. Try it once, and you will see.

Happens every time when I recommend Synpower 5W-40. People ignore it based off either fear or unbelief; I'm not sure which.

If you really want quiet go with 5w-50 M1 makes a good one. GM says to run a 50 when tracking a vette. You'll lose some MPG but it should be quiet.

I went with the redline. Oil pressure is up a few and the engine is quieter but still has the sewing machine thing going on. Im gonna check pr length this weekend. I got some of it on my hands and that stuff is slick!
