Today I was trying to source out a possible exhaust leak and was watching my '01 Z06 motor run for a bit It hs almost 45,000 miles on it, has been re-ringed, and has a Vortex w/ Kooks LT headers w/o any edit tuning.

For some reason today I noticed howmuch the motor lumps along in there and shakes a bit. Is this a normal thing that I just haven't really noticed? The cars been in the shop a bunch for four odd problems this year so I'm being very anal right now.

Hmmm, wonder why mine shakes more than a "little"? Must be something I did to it! :eek: Seriously, the stock cam is pretty hot, and will make the car shake a little at idle.
Nothing to worry about! ;)

Mine shakes too! Really only noticeable after sitting still for a second. You know all that HP doesn't want to sit still!

My "new" '04 with 15,000 miles lumps along perfectly. A buddy with an Audi TT sat in her and said "Ahh gotta love the feel of a strong V8". I had to chuckle............

I wonder how much more noticeable other aggressive cams are on our Z's?
