I don't have this problem, but.... I let the car warm up to 100 degrees (coolant temp) before I even move it. Then I don't take it past 3000 rpm until the oil temp comes up. I've known people with LS1's that have beaten on them cold, and ended up sacrificing their cars to the piston gods!

Speed, guess I'm not used to having to warm up a car before moving it. Never had to do that with my big block 396 in my Chevelle SS.
Humm, well it doesn't sound too bad, I just baby it til it is warm. Only have 330 miles on it and all very easy goin miles at that. Appears from the posts in CF that it does occur frequently...try it and see if you hear it on yours.

Symptom: Cold engine only, and under load while accelerating at 2000+ rpm. Almost sounds like a diesel! Definite knocking going on. After warm no knock.
Also does not do this at idle or at rpms when not under load.

At another forum, seems this has been noticed: http://corvetteforum.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/035604.html

The service manual, Vol. 2 pg. 6-16 states:
Engine Noise Under Load
A cold piston knock which disappears in 1.5 minutes should be considered acceptable.

Appears this is normal. Everyone else have this noise?

Yep, using the right gas...its not the pinging from detonation. Definite knock. although I didn't even notice it this AM? Maybe I'll put the pistol back in the holster for now.

Bob, are you running 92+ octane? I only run with Supreme gasoline and have never noticed any knocking. Hope this helps.
