Never heard of them, but it woudn't hurt to get under it or under the hood and have a look. As far as I know its only got one oil filter, whether its remotely mounted or not shouldn't matter. Probably same thing with the tranny.

Under the truck on the tranny is a small red filter, thats the external spin on filter for the trans, it should be changed I think it says like every 7000 miles. Air filter for the duramax is like all the other NBS chevy's in the airbox, you should also change the spin on diesel fuel filter located on the right(passenger) valve cover, its also a spin on. kinda tight, will need to prime the system with the button on the filter housing till it gets hard aftre you get the new one on.
