Did you take the cats off? Has it been tuned?

Probably the rear O2 sensors if they weren't tuned out.

First thing you need to do is pull the codes and see what the problem is. With mods like yours, a handheld ODB scanner is an essential piece of equipment IMO.

Plenty of guys up your way in Cocoa. Post this over to the Florida forum. I' m sure someone can stop by with a scanner and tell you what the code is. Then decide how best to address the issue. Try the Space Coast Camaro Club.

Yep I'm betting on the rear O2's. Some get away with it and some don't. It's best to have them tuned out.
