You can increase your oil pressure 15psi by switching to MaxLife 10W-40 @ five quarts. You will also gain 5mpg. Use the AC Delco PF47 filter.
You'll never get 5qt'* in useing the 47 you need the PF52 it'* a little longer so you
wont be over filled as much.

but make shure it ain't a Ecore filter there putting on,, i suggest a napa gold or wix

I respectfully disagree with you Sir. I pour 5 quarts into my 3800 series II, and the dip stick reads exactly on the full line. I'm also serious about what I said in regards to Valvoline MaxLife 10W-40.

This is a forum not a debate Dip sticks can vary and oil pans as well.( some get dimpled, some get domed.You guys are fighting over a small amount of oil I responded to this because of a Olds that I had where the oil pressure greatly varied and dropped hard at an idle turned out to be electrical not mechanical. Let us know what the oil change does man.
