It's true that you can use 5w30 synthetic motor oil, the GM super charger oil has a different additive package than regular motor oil. If you're in a pinch and you really need some, than Mobil 1, Pennzoil Plat/Ultra will do, but I'd go ahead and spend the extra few bucks and put the right stuff in.

Most people only need one or two changes. Is that dollar or two savings worth the piece of mind?
