Has any of you experienced this? Several times now in my 1,200 miles I've ridden my SVTC it has backfired. It is always when I accelerate from a stop and change into 2nd, as I re-apply the throttle the front cylinder backfires, I lose power for a split second and the all is well. It has probably done it 4 or 5 times. I wonder if it is fuel management.

From off of 1rst gear....only the thrum of the pipes as the engine backs down until I shift gears and apply the throttle once more, right through to 6th.

Never had such a thing happen before. Even before I had to have my valve train replaced due to a failed lifter and cam damage, I never had backfiring. Just a noisy engine and not great gas mileage.
You need to have the dealership check that out.

Bucfan11 I haven't had this issue or noticed. I have been in sports mode and touring mode. On my next ride I will see if I can get this to happen.

You would notice if it did it. It seems to me (if I remember correctly) that it has only done it when short shifting. That may just be because I mostly shift early.

Ok then maybe not I normally don't short shift. But on the next ride I will see if I can get that to happen. I know the others on the forum short shift so they would know better. Chief and YPE already responded and it hasn't happen to them. I believe American short shifts and hopefully American can chime in.
