I can,t believe the number of times I use this insulation rubber shrink tube sections ,to make electrical splice repairs so it makes a great deal of sense to buy in the larger package sizes as you get 5-7 times as much tube for less than 3 of the smaller blister packs contain
buy a CHEVY SHOP MANUAL FOR YOUR YEAR CORVETTE!
set and verify your ignition timing, pull trouble codes,set your tps and iac,, then check for vacuum leaks on the lines and intake,then get out your multi meter and verify all the sensors, chances are good its a defective heat sensor or defective o2 sensor, a logical step by step approach will lead you to the problem, youll be amazed at what youll learn reading links. use of a shop manual and multi meter can be very helpful

yes they always seem to assume that everyone has unlimited access to both tools and every possible part and location on a corvette, youll need a good multi meter AND an assortment of test leads and it helps a great deal to have visited a salvage yard and grabbed a bunch of electrical connectors to use when making test lead connections, or they can be purchased as replacement parts

[b]the search feature, is always an option here, on this site, but to save time , look at the sub links in these threads, to find sources for replacement electrical connectors, and NAPA can frequently ORDER replacement connectors for repairs at about 3- 5 times the cost youll find them at else ware, but at times getting the part the next day beats waiting a week so the price may be justified. if its a connector thats likely to break frequently buy extras, and have them handy

[size=150]having a wide assortment of different multi meter test leads available is a huge benefit while testing
the clip test leads that test thru a wires insulation without much damage are a big help

NOW IF YOURE JUST LOOKING FOR A INTERMITTENT PROBLEM WITH YOUR CORVETTE THIS MAY HELP
theres several obvious and a couple less obvious things to check,start by pulling trouble codes, checking for loose electrical connections and vacuum lines.
Id start with checking the injector resistance and verify pulse with NOID LIGHTS , check the fuel rail pressure and ignition timing and advance, , ALL SHOULD BE OBVIOUS PLACES THAT COULD CAUSE PROBLEMS , loose electrical connections and grounds are always suspect, the most common cause I find for the lag,well (after verifying its not injector or fuel pressure or OXYGEN SENSOR RELATED or ignition , or knock sensor related,problem )obviously those should be checked , is problems related too the manifold and engine and air heat sensors, those sensors seem to be able to function well enough not to throw trouble codes but not always well enough to allow the engine to run perfectly

THESE THREADS AND SUB LINKS MAY HELP
grab a multi meter and check the sensor resistance and for a good electrical connection
