Thanks Mike I will. This has been educational as I never thought of or new of the extra care to give my car. As I once told a friend, the Camaro has no budget. I will spend what I have to to maintain her.

I know there were issues with 2010 chains. I have a 2011 that was made in Oct 2010. I wonder if I could have had a bad chain?

I imagine the chain and sprockets must be designed for the lowest drag with a stock cam and valve springs. Don't want to be spinning a 20 lb. sprocket if a 5 pound will work.

Didn't you change that?

We changed the mining chain to a Katech Timing Chain
