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

Not to revive this thread from the dead, but I was surprised to come to these forums and see so many people running aftermark underdrive pulleys. Me coming from the import world, we stopped using these forever ago due to harmonics being thrown off and killing oil pumps etc.

The only aftermarket pulley I would put on my car period, would be a ATI fluidampner. Other than that, I will always keep the pulleys stock. I don't know why that seems to be the one thing that the aftermarket arena can't seem to get right, but no sweat off of my back. It's not a huge power adder anyway.

I went back to stock on the rebuild for just that reason.

How has the car been since the fix?

100% agree with you. Underdrive pulleys are stupid all you're doing is reducing your charging, cooling, and steering all of which you need in a performance application. And all for what 3hp?

I have 4,000 miles on the rebuild and have had no issues.
