Rough Idle?

I wanted to get your reactions. Does anyone else have a bouncy idle like this? I don't mind it, but it seems a little excessive. It really gets going around 0:18. My phone takes crappy audio...

Mods:
fastlane pipeline intake
vmax ported throttle body
JBA 3" catback
no tune (although I'm pretty sure that's what it needs...)

Mine does that too, with no mods. I read somewhere it could be the torque management doing that. Tune would take care of that!

Torque management while it's sitting parked in the garage? That seems like a stretch. Who knows though?

That was the first thing I noticed when I bought my car. I researched it, and thats what I found. I could be wrong for sure, maybe someone else can chime in. But I can tell you mine does the exact same thing in the garage at idle. I just got my tune from JRE, when I upload it, I can let you know!!

Cool. I would appreciate that. I've already got my tuner too, I just haven't gotten around to using it. I didn't really notice it until I modded, but that makes sense. I seem to have a little squeak that comes from the engine bay around the same time the RPMs dip.

That's the fairly aggressive cam the car comes with. LS3 right? It's completely normal. They all do it.

I was thinking it was my intake mods. That fastlane really should have a tune according to Jannetty. This, apparently, isn't a symptom of it though! The other problem I have is best described as a misfire when I stomp the pedal with all of the nannies on. If I turn TC off, it never happens.
