I use PureONE oil filters, they're supposed to be one of the best.

Re: Oil change took almost 8 qts (HEMI)

K/N cost me $15

Mious - I stood there and watched .. after the 7th quart he started the engine, reved it and then checked the levels. It needed the 8th quart.

Re: Oil change took almost 8 qts (HEMI)

Yeah, I actually just did my oil as well. Took just under 8 quarts. Mobil 1 full synthetic and Mobil 1 filter. Once you go synthetic, you can't go back I heard. I will bever change anyways. Its good to be 1.

Hemi WK is just really nice
Re: Oil change took almost 8 qts (HEMI)

That's very strange. Mine is full with 7 quarts. If I check it right after changing it's a little low but after sitting a few hours it's full.
