Question How often does the stock SC need oil changes on the GT500?

I have an 08 stock.
Just wondering how often the oil needs to be changed on the SC.

P.S. Any other maintenance on it I should be aware of and how often?

When I first got my Snake...I called Eaton and talked to a tech who was very informative on the 122M...The oil is good for 100K...just check it periodically and the level should be right at the bottom of the fill hole...it uses GM part# 12345982 Supercharger oil...I am personally going to change it at 25 K...there is no drain...you have to suck out the oil with a tube and syringe and it takes approx 6 oz... so you need to buy 2 bottles (4 oz)...
My wife has said she is wondering when she will be in the garage and the GT 500 will be in the bedroom...I tell her thats just crazy...there is no way to get the car up the stairs!

There is NO problem that can't be solved by the simple application of more Horsepower!!
