  • Have A Problem With Your Lt1?

    No matter what the problem is with your 93-97 LT1, if it won't start, misses, down on power, has bad brakes, pulls to the right, window won't roll up, t-tops leak, girlfriend left you... its the opti spark. Just change it. If it dosen't fix it, you've got a dud. Change it again until you get a good one. Sometimes it takes a few, but eventually you should get one that will at least last 6 months.

                    Dynaspark or delteq is the way to go.

                            Mine did, it had a bad crank sensor in it. Would heat up and die then start again once it cooled off. Although they fixed it for free, it cost me alot of money and downtime. :angry:

                            But now i am fairly skilled at changing an optispark
