Hell yeah, very nice Z. These cars came out when I was graduating high school and I always wanted one. I grew up in the "they haven't made a Corvette since 1967 mentality". Congrats and drive it.

Not around it at the moment but I can check when Iím home. I first knew of it from a for sale ad on Autotrader in Bluffton SC. I watched it for a while a year or so ago until it finally sold. Then it popped up on Ebay a few times for sale in GA and got a bunch of low ball offers but was a no sale.

Yeah just the last 4 of the VIN.

Ha! My bellyaching about wanting one is definitely well documented on here. Well she starts up and will idle all day no problem and pulls like an LT5 should and doesnít miss a beat, but Iíve had a hiccup thatís happening when I get off the gas and coast down to say 10 mph or below to make a turn at an intersection, the engine stalls. If I feather the throttle that keeps it alive.

Starts back up no problem and chugs along as it should but itís does randomly hunt for idle once off the gas or stall. Remainder of FSMs I ordered are arriving today so the weekend will be spent trouble shooting the stall issue. Fastazu provided some common sense reasoning to call Marc but I wanted to try and solve it first. Hasnít dampened how I feel about having one!

I have this issue from time to time also. It usually happens when I have the AC on, and have been running hard, and need to slow down quickly. You have a Haibeck chip, right? Marc tuned mine also. I would give him a call (although email might be better as he responds immediately, usually at 2am) and see what he thinks.

Good luck.
