V6 Rough Idle

I'm a recently new Camaro owner. Love the car. Although, I have to say, this thing sure does idle a bit rough. Nothing that appears to be too drastic..probably anywhere from 25-75 RPM fluctuation. Car runs great, just noticed the idle. Does this seem to be normal?

Very normal. I think the first 20 seconds or so mine is at 1000rpms and then drops to a normal idle

Yep, mine does the same. But when it drops to normal idle is when I notice it to be a little rough.

I owned alot of noisy cars but this engine is the worst in that department. From the lifters to high pressure fuel pump, this car can make you real paranoid sometimes.

I just noticed you had the 2012LFX, but I don't think it would be too far off from the LLT. I say as long as your CEL does not come on and start vibrating like your engine is about to fall apart I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Same here. It will run a little rough for about 10 seconds then smooth out. Nothing to worry about.
