It's been a long time so don't hold me to it. There is an adjustment on the power unit, I belive on the end ot it. It sounds like it needs to be backed off a bit. If it is too far one way the unit takes a mind of it's own. Too far the other way and no power.

Vettes are quick steerers as it is - you can sneeze and be in a whole 'nother lane!

If it's that twitchy, get your front camber checked. Wheel alignment shops hate 'Vettes so you'll have to go to a good shop. Check the rear camber as well - it's very common to see the rear wheels pointed in at the top with way too much camber. Make sure they plan to use the cam bolts to adjust the rear, and not just bend the bars!
