    When you look up the word "deal" in the dictionary, there's a big stack of RP oil and Greg's face above it!
    If you want I can bang your card for an extra 10
    Thanks for the support everyone!

    Thats what is nice about oil changes, there is no such thing as ASAP. You know it has to be done so you order it whenever.

    Got my Box-O-Oil yesterday. NICE!

    Greg, I'm assuming you won't complain if I buy this package from you for my Trans Am, too? I don't quite need 9 quarts, but I know how to put extra few bottles on the shelf for later!

    Can I possibly substitute another kind of oil? I like to run either XPR 5W30 or the straight SAE 30 in the Trans Am.

    I can do straight 30 for the same price but I am not sure what the XPR is. Royal purple sells a racing 5w30 oil called Racing 21 but it is twice the cost of the standard 5w30.

    If you want to sub in the straight 30 weight that would not be a problem just make a note on the order. Your T/A also takes a different filter but I am sure you knew that. GM changed the oil filter thread on the '07 + LS engines I am pretty sure.

    I'll probably run the straight 30. No need for dual viscosities.

    I don't know what RP does sometimes. I've found the XPR a few times, and it's on their website. But, it's always hard to find. It's probably the same as their Racing 21, I guess.

    Actually, I didn't know it was a different filter. That's good info.

    FYI - there is a difference between good filters and bad filters. Just before last race, I changed my oil and decided to "make do" with an off-the-shelf filter from Auto Zone (the orange one). Well, a few months later, and I see a nice puddle of oil under the car. It's coming from the oil filter where it seals against the engine.

    Moral of the story? Spend the extra couple of dollars for the K&N - never had a problem with those.

    Yeah FRAM is $hit! K&N and Mobil 1 filters are both made by Champion Labs. See my oil thread for more info!

    Speaking of filters. GM/AC delco has come up with a new filter for the LS9 engine. It is said to have a thicker shell to prevent bulging.

    Yes! I checked on the Royal Purple website and found the part number for the XPR oil and it is the Racing 21 oil.

    Hey Greg...

    How about a kit for replacing the diff fluid with R/P??? Not sure if the diff cover has to come off or not but would be nice to have some of that too.

    GM recommends 1.25L or 1.32qt of 92184900 @ $26.66 a liter.
    I will see what I can dig up.

    I wonder if you have to use something special back there. I remember when i swapped in a T2R into my Trans Am that all kinds of people said that:

    - you shouldn't run a full synthetic because it was too slippery
    - you had to run an additive to reduce gear whine
    - the additive didn't help with gear whine, it was the fluid itself
    - you had to run GM fluid because it was special

    Basically, all kinds of crazy stuff. I ended up running whatever the Mobil 1 stuff was, with no additive.

    Are there any special requirements for these rearends?
