    check into cleaning your injectors, change spark plugs etc... get all that cheap stuff out of the way then you can eliminate those

    Yea something is wrong with your car. Because the Z28 Camaro had FIPK and a Flowmaster mufler and beat the 335i. I just saw the race on ls1tech. Heres the link:

    sounds like something to do with your clutch switch i dont know why but thats where i would look next. do you still have to depress the clutch to start? is the rpm change you speak of in the same place as the safety switch?

    yeah i still depress the clutch to start the car...only when then clutch is in this problem occurs...now if I let out of the clutch super fast the car wont screw up...clutch switch maybe? how can I test this?

    This car may have an engine out of a '98. The original might have been shelled.

    thats weird though..because it still has the LS6 intake..and no EGR, and I dont see any butt splices or solderd lines or anything as to where one would have been and deleted:duno:

    btw..got the car tuned back to stock, changed the fuel filter..huge difference compared to my last "home street tune" and old fuel filter..car was straining...bad

    I figured out my clutch problem...its the cruise safety switch...i just took it off of the bracket on the clutch pedal and taped that bitch closed...no more problems lol
