Good afternoon,

Sorry about Pearl not understanding. She's a robot.

So it is safe to assume the dealership has looked for fault codes and checked for misfires while driving?

You have the factory exhaust system right?

Typically two things cause an exhaust backfire:

Incomplete combustion- poor spark plug performance, or excessive fuel.

or

Very low exhaust back-pressure- normally only seen when you replace the factory exhaust system.

Is it a loud pop or a faint pop?

Did you get a phone call pop-up thing? That's not me. It's automated- another robot.

Does it seem better or worse with a hot engine?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Chevy Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

According to a tech tip from GM the shift pop was programmed in by GM to simulate the sound that race cars make when they shift. To be more precise, they left the sound there rather than tune it out which is what they usually do. It too is caused by unburned fuel hitting the hot exhaust and is caused by the momentary loss of spark used to help prevent damage to the transmission. It's technically called torque management.

If GM actually does this why do they not inform their dealers???
Chevy Mechanic: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

Very few dealers are experts on these new vettes. Also, the veracity of this GM tech tip is only as strong as the tech who entered it into the database. They are often unverified.

More than likely it's simply something they couldn't program out without causing a shift lag. The exhaust system is so un-restrictive that it would be difficult to avoid the pop if you are running more than 1/2 throttle.
