    sounds like you might have bought a lemon dude. Take your car to a skilled mechanic and have it fully diagnosed. Save yourself all of the other B.S.

    good idea. If someone went through the trouble to put a set of 806 heads on the car and kept the better 241 heads, then they probably put on a LS1 'vette intake and tuned out the egr code. Not to scare you but you might have an entire engine from a '97-'98 car with even more than the 77k!!

    your car seems as if it has had foul play. my stock hawk beats stock c5 vettes. so be patient and get to the bottom of your problem. i had a simple vaccume hose with a tiny hole in it on a 02 ta i used to have which gave me loss of power so be patient and start getting numbers off everything and do some research to make sure you have what your supposed to have.

    +1 ... a simple fix could change your car completely. I had an issue with my MAF about 2 years ago that drove me nuts and took months to figure out. Car felt like a dog and it pissed me off. Once I figured it out the car ran like new and felt 10x faster!! Don't give up on your hawk!
