hey everyone, do yall have problems with your valves rattling like i do? I wonder if I need to run seafoam through her again? Maybe a different gas company? I dunno... See, i normally drive her around real slow, but i just got my computer back from wait4me so I took her for a run or two.. and I couldnt get them to stop rattling... i did about 5 or 6 WOT runs with the same results... could i maybe be mistaking it for pinging? It has 89 octane in there right now and he put the 89 octane tune in... any ideas?

sounds like it may be detonating... I wouldnt doubt it with the tune you have... common problem. up the octane and see if it still does it.

Yeah, sorry I'm terrified of W4M tunes. My tranny sounded like it was about to grenade when I had one. I ditched it ASAP and went with Westers.

Could be CSK - listen to the sound clip on www.pistonslap.com

Hey, well i know its not piston slap.. it doesnt do it at all.. this truck never has... i have an 01 SS camaro.. and I know what slap sounds like!

Anyways, I'm just gonna try putting some higher octane in there...
