    miss fire from your MAF sensor?
    2002 Camaro Z28 Bolt ons, Flowmaster catback w/3" QTP electric cutout, Superchips tuned, Granatelli MAF, SLP cold air induction Lid & filter, ZEX powertune plugs, Taylor 10.4mm wires, 160 T-stat w/fan control, Eibach sportlines & BFG-KDW's on 17" SLP SS rims.

    Clean the MAF with MAF cleaner by CRC. It should help. If a tuneup has been done in a while I would do that as well. Plugs and wires. A misfire code will cause the converter to unlock and shudder.
