5w-40 is spec oil in just about every German gas-car today.
I wouldn't worry about running it in an LS... Now 20w-50, that is something you shouldn't run! ;)

Maybe, but I wasn't commenting on the use of the zinc so much as the "engine break-in" stuff.

Lots of older cars need zinc additives in the oil, no disputing that.

you do not need to take off the manifold to replace the coil. Tops 1 hour of labour and the cost of the parts.

You can pick up a new aftermarket coil from RockAuto or similar for ~$100
