    LS1's are some very rough idling engines. Sometimes they just act like that. How many miles are on the car? Did you get it used?

    LS1's are known to idle kinda rough, espeshally compared to their LT1 brethren.

    Really??

    I thought idle was pretty smooth when it was stock.
    I assume the service engine soon light isn't on?
