If you plan to change your own oil, I would recommend installing an oil drain valve in place of the factory plug.
My 2006 6.0 had a drain plug on the bottom of the pan and was very easy to hit the drain pan.
On the 6.7, the plug is on the back of the pan and when removed shoots a stream of oil about 1.5-2' from the drain.
I discovered this my first oil change much to my wife's chagrin as it stained the concrete even though I had a large sheet of "just in case" cardboard under it.
I use Mobil1 0W40 available in 5qt jugs. I prefer the new style canister filter over the 6.0's filter element-less mess.
Just some thoughts after I learned my lesson after my first oil change on the 6.7L
