97xxx

just rolled over 97xxx in my 06 ss/sc what things should i change or keep an eye on? i know i need new cabin filter air filter and fuel filter and new suspension, but what else? also idk if it just me still getting use to the new clutch at slow speeds but ive noticed at times it seams to like sputter or bouce around at times when i take off form first also sometimes the rpms will climb then go way down then come back up and even back out that norm happens after the take off which could be possibly from the almost stalling out from getting use to the new clutch, thanks for everyone that gives any info

replace your timing chain tensioner if you haven't. maybe throw some seafoam in a vac line. there's not a whole lot you need to do

Sounds like the tensioner to me. If you keep regular maintenance ie. oil, trans fluid, fuel filter, coolant, brakes and fluid, etc. you should be fine.

I'm at 142k and do nothing but race the piss out of my car. Only thing I got is a sticking lifter noise that I'm working on. Still runs like a dream though.

The bucking you get in first gear.

Tensioner is more of a pain than anything. You will want two people there to make replacing the belt easier.

First thing the author puts is "this is going to suck"
