View Full Version : Oil filters

Hello everyone.
Looking for some advice on what oil filter I should use on my LS2, been through the build file but can't find any reference to the original, but I do remember some time back there being some discussion on this forum about the merits of some makes of filters, just want to make sure I fit the best. and while we are on the subject what oil do most owners use?
All advise appreciated
Thanks and regards,

Hi, my thoughts about filters, are that if you buy a reputable make, it should be OK. If the writing on the side is in Chinese, I wouldn't buy it, if you know what I mean. As for oil, my LS3 has Mobil 1 5w30 in it. I wouldn't have any problems putting a Castrol product or Valvoline product in it either. Just buy good quality oil. It's probably the cheapest maintenance you can do.

Quick google search suggest AC Delco PF46:

The PF48 is for the LS3.

In the process of looking for oil myself. GM 5w30 Dexos2 seems like a good shout to me for the LS3, and cheap to boot.

I used Mobil 1 5W30, was 50% at Eurocarparts at the time! Result.
