As long as the tune is not locked then you are not stuck. A different tuner can flash in a new tune for you if and when you wish.

That sounds very similar to a lifter that may have turned and is skidding over the cam lobe instead of rolling over the cam lobe. Don't ask how I know. :doh:

There you go - that sounds like how a untuned cammed LS3 should sound.

You have to be relieved to get this solved and behind you. Good luck for the dyno tune.

I'll put this on my calendar. I hate driving I-20 in SC to get there as I always get rock chips - what a lousy excuse for a federal interstate! But I'd like to come if possible.

A cammed car with the cutouts open is the best for loud and good. Every show or cruise I go to my car stops people in their tracks when I roll by. People eat it up.

Its not too late. You can change to a different oil either now or whenever you are ready. FWIIW I switched from M1 to Royal Purple HPS to get more wear protection because of my cam install.

At the least and if you didn't already - you need to go into the tune and adjust the rear axle ratio to reflect the 3.91 gears so that your speedo and odometer read correctly.
