2010 1SS looking for some info.

Hey guys, I just bought a used 2010 1ss M6 with 9,600 miles on it. I know these LS motors are pretty tride and true, I was just seeking some veteran advice as to what I should be aware of maintenance wise other than the obvious oil changes, and any other issues these cars tend to have that I could prevent. I read quite a bit just wanting to see if anything else could be brought up to my attention with this thread. The car has a GMPP axle back, and K&N CAI. Thanks for the advice

Nope! Nothing. Just drive it and enjoy it.

No tranny issues like the Rustang or the Z.
No killer floormats like the Toyotas.
No exploding gas tanks like the Pintos.

Get rid of the K&N intake and get a Halltech.

The transmission on the M6 wasn't designed for a 4000lb car so its a little tender. Make sure you turn off the traction control when your doing hole shots. Tap it once and the traction control goes off. Tap it once and then hold down on it for 7 seconds and both your traction control and stability tract go off. Tap it twice and it goes into competition mode(don't do hole shots in competition mode)

I won't be doing much racing, especially from a dig. This is my wifes DD and my play toy lol! How much with the stock clutch hold?? I'm used to big heavy diesel's that with any kind of power adder you have to get a aftermarket clutch. My first plan was to get a amsoil air filter to fit the end of the intake, I'm not a fan of K&N, especially on diesels.

Welcome!

You will find the clutch system to be the biggest sore spot. It "shares" the fluid reservoir with the brakes and has a tendency to "stick" and not release fully when hammered on. It has synchro issues and is very dependent on full operating temps to perform properly. As far as "how much HP it will hold" goes, not a whole lot beyond factory if you are romping on it...

There are several things folks have found to help the situation (you may not find them all on this site when searching tho). Primarily, changing the trans fluid to high quality synthetic, flushing the brake fluid with the same and adding a "return helper spring" kit are the easy/cheapest things.

Then you start getting into more involved things like swapping it out for the ZR1 clutch and having the synchros changed for the new CF ones that came out as an update (you can get this done under warranty of you have any grind into 2nd and 3rd and can get the dealer to duplicate it ).
