Thanks guys, I just have a couple more problems to iron out (like why it pulls 9* of timing for false knock when I go wide open throttle) and get some drag radials on her and pull some 11 second slips out of this thing

Check for a loose exhaust, check the knock sensors, make sure they are torqued right.

I hope it'* a Z06, I think it would be more than a body kit and wheels to convert it, based on the back window.
You need to get a video posted of that LS

It'* not a Z06, just wheels and the side screens on a 2000 hardtop model, they made 2 years of non-hatch, hardtop cars from 99-00 (referred to as FRC or Fixed Roof Coupes) before the Z06 came out in 2001-2004. The car I have is actually rarer than any year Z06 (1 of 2000 in model year 2000) Z06'* acutally had LS6 engines (top end on added to an LS1) and a different ratio transmission and a little bit stiffer suspension. Although my car does have the Z51 heavier suspension on it already. All the looks and more performance than a Z06 now for no Z06 premium, and it'* more rare to boot.

Yeah, I think it may be the pilot bearing for the clutch, it rattles an awful lot while engaged in neutral. I thought it may be the knock sensors too since we swapped the intake manifold and coolant pipes when we did the LS6 intake but she is fine until wide open throttle. I also have a slight clearance issue between the bellhousing and the passenger header that might be throwing it off.......I need to check all that stuff out in the spring, just so discouraging knowing this thing has so much more left in it and only being able to pull 374/360 out of it on the dyno.

Do you have a way of scanning your AFR in wide band? At WOT the tables change to the PE tables. If your running lean your going to knock
