what kind of exhaust set up do you have? Also do you still have your EGR/AIR hooked up?

When i bought my camaro (stock) it did not back fire at all
After installing longtube headers and True Duals, it backed fired some.
Now that i removed EGR/AIR (after LS6 intake swap), no back firing like before. only on occasion.

Thats my experiance with "backfiring" atleast.

If you just purchAsed the car I would go ahead and change out plugs, oil, trany, and re end. Maybe radiator flush if need to be. You never know when the last time they been changed. I wOuld put synthetic oil, I use castrol synthetic than change it out every 3000miles at the most.

Yeah it is. Personally I dont like running my motor past 3k without an oil change because of the cam work and mods, my ls1 is a thirsty son-of-abit*h...it keeps it running healthy

Almost like clockwork my '02 SS backfires a lot between my first gear shift of the day, then almost never again unless I ride down a particular gear from high rpm for a while then disengage the clutch. I only hear it (maybe even only get it at all) when the e-cutout is open though...
