I use AC Delco 1 quart filter on my 454. It is OEM. Oil varies. I am an Amsoil dealer but sometimes I use Valvoline dinosaur oil. I change more based on time than miles since the truck mostly sits. My engine also has a Preluber. So prior to starting the entire system is pressurized with oil, then on shutoff everything gets washed with oil so the dirt goes down to the sump.1994 Chevy K2500 Silverado, 454 (modified), original owner.

This is a topic that has been beaten to death. But use Mobil 1 and a K&N filter. I would use Amsoil but it is not easy to find in stores.
