    I guess I would go with a 01 or 02 if you can. I have heard they have better posi units which I would assume is true because when I had mine apart there are no clutches. And also I think 01 and 02 have LS6 intake manifolds. As for engine knock I think most also have that if Im not mistaken.

    I guess I will always think of it as knock others might call it slap, go on youtube and look up LS1 engine knock.

    Its piston slap and is completely normal for an LS car due to the aluminum block. However the slap should go away as the vehicle warms up. If it does not, do yourself a favor and run lol.
