Just as a sidebar, i recently had the oil changed on my VW Passat after 15,000 kms (manufacturers recommended) and the oil was black, but also the oil filtered had half disentegrated. That means that there are little pieces of oil filter throughout the engine. 3000kms later and still not ill effects.

Wouldn't worry about pcs of the filter being throughout the engine unless they accumulate and plug an oil passage. Suggest a long drive of at least 50 miles at highway speeds and then immediately drain the oil and change the oil and filter again. Cut the filter to examine for debris. We always cut and examined the oil filters on all our race engines.

I can. Not saying I know everything and most say I am full of it. but their are lots of issues on our vehicles and yes engineers do get it wrong.
I hope I don't disappoint here, but, I can take it all apart and put it back again and guess what it will work too, been doing it for a living since 1965. I also know a few engineers that could not screw in a light bulb but on paper they do ok, also worked with some who were just natural at everything they do.

As I said before " Or of course you can just decide you know more than GM and do it your way."
