    It only does it at idle(used my snap-on scan tool with the misfire monitor). At steady RPM of say, 2000rpm it does not miss. I think it is because of the lopey ass idle!! It's at the tuning shop right now. We'll see how it goes.

    H, man, with the idle at 850rpm, it's no wonder its shaking the fillings outta your teeth. my little 224/224 .581/.581 @112lsa and mods, i have her idling at almost 1k. i wouldnt mind a little lower RPM idle, but even between 950-1000 RPM idle, the 112lsa sounds great, and doesnt shake. now, i also realize i dont have the duration that you have, but in the near future i will, when i get around to installing the TSP 231/237 cam...

    i would check into a retune w/SRQ and make sure they use wide band testing. im curious as to why youre tossing O2 codes...

    also, i would think that maybe a retune would make off idle a bit smoother and quite possibly some more horses could be found as well...

    Got it back from being tuned and I need bigger injectors to complete it. @ only 5800RPM it hit 451 RWHP and 410 RWTRQ. Leans out at the top so limiter is set low right now. Car is ungodly fast now even detuned!!

    Retuned, and idle is now at 925rpm. Codes are gone. I am sooo very happy now. I didn't understand the level of chop this cam was capable of when I asked the tuner to give it a little chop chop. 850rpm had way to much stutter for me. It still stutters but it's definitely not as rough and much more to my liking. The car pulls hard from about 2500rpm to 6300rpm. Thats where the limiter is set. Keep getting comments on the sound of the car. One guy pulled into the car wash just to chat it up some. Personally, I don't like the LM2 at wot. Pretty abnoxious. Too much pop and raspyness. It sounds nice just cruising along tho. Still, I think I will visit ls1sounds.com and be open to something different. Man I love my ceramic Pacesetters. They fit and look awesome. Cleaning out the AIR and EGR is a must do. I will try to post pics tomorrow even tho I have never been successful at it so far. Well, needless to say, I've got the fever now and will be getting heads/lifters next.

    kealap,
    Thanks for the info. Things worked out just fine for me. Did you install your heads yourself? I'd like to do that and then go get the tune.

    I have this cam as well the torquer v2 in my ss. I have had it now for over 15,000 miles. Love it. I have stock ported and a 3 valve grind on the stock heads with a 4" exhaust. very bad ass. Idles nice at 850. The surging however is due to the size of the cam. I have tuned most of mine out down to around 1200-1300 rpm's in drive.

    The po300 code is possible from the size of the cam.

    I'm in Texas, with no AC, and your parts list is pretty much my wishlist.

    your launching sounds like my car did with a new LS7 clutch with a stock motor, I'm betting a lot of your problems will get better with time on the clutch.

    But the surging def sounds like a tuning issue, the V2 gets lots of raves about getting a good DD cam...granted its tuned well.

    I don't know where you live, but there are some good tuners in DFW, and one in Longview, thats where i intend to go.

    youys both realize this thread is 4 years old right? lol but just to throw it out there I think this guy needed a better tuner. Many people daily drive the tv2 with no issues like surging or having to slip the clutch to keep it from stalling. with a cam like that the tune is 95% of the driving experience.

    well if thats the case then i need a better tune, i have to slip the clutch and have cam surge when cruising as well, also i have the LS6 stage 3 ported and polished heads with 2.08 intake an 1.60 exhaust with 227 runners and mine is only making around 440 with the exhaust on, its a 3 inch magnaflow all the way out the back, i think from what i read in this thread i should be way higher, WTF????

    I think your hp is probably ok ls1's seem to hit a wall around 460whp with heads and cam and usually those are heads like afr or trick flow idk how your heads exactly compare to those but I can tell you would probably pickup power by going to an aftermarket head casting. I'd say 440 is about right you maybe able to squeeze 15 more out of a better tune but every dyno is different. However you shouldnt really have any surging the cam is big but not that big a good tuner should be able to street tune the car also and get the surging out. obviously the car isnt going to like 6th gear at 1000 rpm but for just putting around it should be smooth

    6.0, M6, 410 rear, LT's, magnaflow cat back, LS6 ported and polished stage 3 heads,LS6 intake,ported MAF, ported TB, CF air lid, K an N, TSP v2 cam, spec 3 clutch, heavy duty slave cylinder, race performer flywheel, MSD wires, Dyno tune, UMI rear suspension, UMI ST brace other stuff i cant remember...lol
    those are my mods above, i am thinking it should be higher but you could be right i guess, i mean with a 6.0 and the big valves shouldnt it be higher, also the tuner said my injectors were at 95% duty cycle, could that be holding me back?
