That’s the worst part, I know how to shift properly, I used to always ask how people could miss shift into a gear lower.

Hell, I even sat in my car after the fact and I had problems going from 2nd to 1st parked, I just couldn’t wrap my head around how the hell I managed to do it.

I think it was nerves coupled with being tense and trying to slam gears as fast and hard as possible.

Rookie mistake for the strip. :(

Don't beat up on yourself.... I promise you everyone that has ever tried to actually push the car hard has done this or something like it.... It happened, learn from it and move on....

Thanks man, I definitely learned from it, I was super happy I had the nerve to continue the day and do my other 2 runs.

I think I've decided to just play it out, drive the car and enjoy it. Deal with the consequences when they come. I think I just got lucky, and I should count my stars.

If it does bite me in the ass in the future, I'll just continue to pay the car off, save up and do some serious motor work to it.

Here is a heart breaking sound bite....Shifted into 5th at the 3/4 mile at about 200 mph.... three or four seconds later at about 217 mph, right before the mile, if you look closely at the windshield bottom left of the frame, you'll see a fog come across the glass.... That was when I lifted the heads, blew the head gasket and tore up a substantial part of the block and destroyed both heads....I over pressurized my coolant system before the block vented and swelled the radiator on both ends... My weekend was over... Note the fog as it hits the glass... and the time until the first beep... During this interval, I stabbed the clutch, came off the gas, reached up and tossed the chute, which hit so hard it set off Onstar, which is the beep sound.... Beep........ Beep............ Beep.......... Briiinnngggggg.... Onstar.... bush blah blah.... I thanked her for calling and was way more concerned about the motor.... Nobody was hurt but my baby was....

to be honest with you my Denali's LQ4 has been making the same noise for about 15k miles. It gets a tad more loud every so often. I am planning on pulling it apart real soon. Sounded exactly like that when it started. If yours gets louder I'd have a look

Mine now literally sounds like a can of marbles. I am 99% its valve train. I think lifters. The bitch is that its my daily driver and I have a cross country trip planned with the family in a few weeks. Camaro has been in the body shop for a month so i haven't been able to look into it. Either way, hope the OP doesn't have the same issue
