    I think that GMJunkie says that the engine is just broken in at 100K. Can't imagine that 92k would be too many miles for a cam change.

    Nah,My theory is somewhere between 40-60,000 miles depending how it's driven!
    My 03 didn't really start running good or quit using a little oil between changes till between 44-47,000 miles!

    My 01 Z06 I haven't a clue,I traded that rough buckboard riding SOB off at less than 36,000 miles last summer for Cash and a "Swedish MeatBall" AWD Sport Wagon!~!!

    What's the Swedish Meatball wagon? The link shows a dash for a 2008 Subbieroo.

    The SubbieSabbie were 05 and 06.
