My V seems to Idle pretty rough. The car doesn't shake but it definately has a good tremble that is very noticable. Anyone else experience the same?:confused:

That'd be your camshaft. Welcome to the world of LS6 my friend!

That's the sound of balls in your car. Wait, the idle needle isn't moving when in idle right?

i know the cure for this.
1. Find the rightmost pedal.
2. Put your right foot over it.
3. Slam on it and the rough idle goes away.

It felt like the cam but I wasn't sure? I bought this car with high mileage and was not sure how much of a lope caddy would allow.

Yeah mine's a bit lumpy and so was my vette (previous car '02 C5 vert). It was noticable early on since it was worse than my vettes (ls1 vs ls6) but I don't notice it as much now.

There is something that more than makes up for this... the sound of the ls6 at 6000+ rpm :).

The car hasn't been in production very long....LOL. How did you but one with "high miles...." ??? What is "high miles" by the way...

The price for the power is the slightly lumpy cam....nature of the beast.

I think I recall he posted in another thread that he bought a demo car with 10k on the clock (but I could be wrong).
