If you're looking for budget and power, go for Speed Engineering 3/4s. Can't do better for the price.

The stock manifolds are garbage compared to any pair of headers.

Check for a cracked spark plug with misfire checks on a scanner.

LS1 Fbod plugs are a bitch to service. I cracked the #8 taking it out when I did LTs. You might have cracked one putting em in.

Isn't the stock clutch pack 6 (7 in 65/70E) single sided clutches? I seem to remember my Ray Z Pack being like 14 double sided.

Check for clogged or defective IAC valve/motor. Clean MAF with MAF cleaner. If oil type air filter, make sure it isn't over oiled. Look up vacuum leak check procedures.

You guys miss this part? I never said dual was best for HP or that dual was superior in flow.

Sorry I made fun of everybody's minivan exhaust design on steroids.

I like my F better than when I had my Goat.

Although, if the GTO doesn't have those Mexi-blue headlights, you should build that. Less embarrassing.

No rub, perfect clearance everywhere.

Sound is from Y merge back. I'll probably end up pulling the heat shield and seeing if it clears up.
