    It sounds like something serious in my opinion. Rod knock type thing.
    No idea the miles on that bottom end....
    No idea who tuned it (if it ever did get tuned) after the motor swap.
    Agreed. Piston slap, stuck lifters, bent push rods are all not loud knocking sounds. What you are describing sounds more like maybe like a rod knock or possibly even a spun bearing. Hard to tell without a video of the actual sound.

    If it's most noticeable at start up and then simmers down after the engine warms up, it is quite possible it's just piston slap.

    I dunno. I hope the pistons aren't contacting the electrodes from the plugs.

    C5 Corvette never had the LS2.
    If that is a typo and you meant LS1, they are the same.


    Any and all plugs should have the gap checked before installing.

    I hope it's minor...or they make good on the motor warranty wise/cut the labor price.
