    A little shake at idle

    I'm assuming the little shake I get from the engine at idle is normal. Does the LT1 have a mild performance cam hence the little bit of shaking? I like it, it reminds me of the muscle cars in the 60's with hotter cams.

    It's normal... I consider it performance trying to get out... It's not nearly as intrusive as a Duntov 30-30 cam with solid lifters back in the day!

    I think it would smooth out with 50 more rpm in the tune.

    i don't like it, spent a lot of money for the car, came from a Cadillac xlr,which idled smooth. I thought i would just do something mechanical with the pedal, i see it has nothing to cheat with. How can i bump the idle speed up 50 to stop the shake?

    There is nothing you can do other than change the ECU tuning. (And risking warranty coverage)
