    optimal performance

    Hi guys I know this is probally a stupid question but how do you know if your ls1 is running top notch? I am not a mechanic nor do I pretend to be. I am new to the ls1 motors and have never driven one before I owned one. It has been my dream to own one of these cars.

    My car was throwing a code which i thought to be the 02 or the cats. Now after a few tanks of premium the code has went away and not came back. The previous owner told me he ran regular in it, but barely drove it.

    I just don't know how to feel about the cars performance because I have nothing to compare it too.

    It's fast. It's also stock. Like anybody else I am always craving more power and speed, I just want to make sure my car is performing like it should, because i have no odvious signs that it's not yet...

    Any help or oppinions would be appreciated.

    The only way to do it is to do a full tune tune up on it. New plugs, filters, fluids and belts.

    True, if youre not throwing codes you should be ok. Since you just bought it upgrade all the things mentioned to reassure yourself. Also check the oil.
