How old are the parts?? If there brand new, i wouldnt worry about it much because its prolly all the crap getting burned off. Was it cold outside? How old is ur oil and are u low/leaking it? Was the car cold when u did this or was the engine at operating temp?

Parts are broken in 1000+ miles, engine was not cold, it was like 55 degrees out, car has never consumed oil in the past, but the battery was dead before i started it, so the learning curves in the computer were lost, but i'm still worried about it

sounds good i wouldn't crank on it like that though at idle. i've always been told don't turn it over 2,000 rpm's unless it's under a load. especially at cold start up.

well it wasnt a cold startup, it was at operating temp, and i cant see that hurting the engine since under a load it has more stress on it... idk

free revving a motor is like running down a hill. It is easier to do but it flings parts more quickly making for unstable harmonics and valve train instability. It may not hurt your engine right then and now but its simply not a good idea.
on the other hand running up a hill is more strainful but is more controlled, hope this analogy helps.
Ok OK every now and then i rev it to, just try not to do it to high.2000 auto camaro

I like the sound of the flowmaster cat backs. Too bad they don't flow very well. Yours sounds good with the Lt's and flowmaster.
