Anyone have any idea if it is easier to drain the oil with the car level or at an incline?
Level or a slightly forward incline would be best.

I have a lift in my garage an the floor slopes front to back 2 inches per 10 feet. So I always jack the back of my car up a little while draining the oil. Don't forget, you put 7 in the dry sump, start the car and then add the remaining quart.

PS. Don't forget, there are two drain plugs. One to the front and one to the side of the oil pan.

planning on using race ramps - they lift the front end about 10 inches I believe -
do you have something to lift the rear? youll need the car to be doing a slight nose dive, if your near skokie illinois i can give you a hand i have everything needed to lift a c6

I my car I get more oil out by far when it's level, YMMV. I would put it on ramps and jack the end up. If you don't have a jack now would be a good time to get one! :) Good luck.
