Default C7 oil change questions....

Just checking before I do it.

The standard c7 just takes 7 quarts?
All I need to do is drain the oil from one bolt, remove the filter, and refill?
Is this like a normal vehicle oil change or am I missing something?

Plan to use 0w/30 mobil 1 advance fuel economy oil and a k and n oil filter.

Mobil 1 0w-40 ESP is the correct oil to use per GM.
You can order it from Speedway.

And i would use the the A/C Delco PF64 filter. I get them at Walmart.

Just be aware that even though the capacity is listed as 7 quarts, you will find that only 6 quarts comes out when you drain it. So don't put the full 7 quarts in when you're done or it will be overfilled. Put in 5.5 quarts to start and then check the level and add accordingly until it shows full. Many of us with the wet sump LT1 have noticed that it only takes 6 quarts to show full on the dipstick.
