I have a new to me 2013 Corvette z06 with the ls7 motor. I must suck at searching as I cannot find a thread about it. The motor has been aroung since 2006/7 and is in wide use. I used both Redline and Pennzoil synthetics in my 2004 z06 ls6 motor. Thanks if you can help. Only full synthetics for my performance cars. This will be a street & track car and I won't be changing oil for track.

Run a Dexos2 (not D1G2) oil, it's very similar to a Euro C3 oil, and Dexos2 is what they use in the new Corvette.

Anything dexos2 should serve your needs. Since you like Pennzoil, know that Walmart carries the PP Euro L 5w30, which meets dexos2 standards. If you prefer a 40, they also have Valvoline Synthetic MST 5w40

Do you still use the OCI suggested by your OLM? I'm sure it takes track usage into account drive

Hmm, I know I've seen this oil at WM before but they didn't seem to have it at the one where I stopped last night. Looked like they were low on stock in general, though...will keep an eye out for it.

This won't be showing up in retail stores until at least the end of the summer to early fall though. It's only in a small number of GM dealers right now and they aren't selling it to the public, they are only using it for oil changes in their service bay.

The Fram Ultra does not have the proper 22psi bypass valve for this engine.

There is a new Napa Gold out that does, it's part number 100290, but it's so new that you probably won't find it at Napa just yet. Wix has the same filter too, it's WL10290

The XP and Platinum versions don't get a lot of love on here, the filtering efficiency is not that good apparently.

What oil viscosity does the owner's manual show for track use?
