Thanks for the info Trickster. This will be kinda long I have a lot of info to TRY to explain so I can somewhat tell you whats been going on so far, its hard because this is my first experience with a rebuild. Here it goes. After the rebuild I ran codes and replaced MAF, MAT, and O2. Still ran kinda crapy. About a week later upon advice from you guys I found a few vacuum leaks. After that ran really good, but I parked it for a few weeks due to not having seats or registration yet. Well now I have both took it for a very hard ride and all I could say was WOW. It ran fantastic. On the way home it was hesitating real bad with a check engine light. If I stomped on it on the way home it would feel like someone turned the fuel valve off then back on again, or just turned off the current. But it would never stall. So today I ran codes again since my MAF was still covered I got a new one because I had a 34 again. I was also told by GM to replace my coil which I did since it was only a few bucks. Ran it again kinda hard ran pretty good but not great. Check engine came back on came up with a 24 vehicle speed sensor and a 42 electronic spark. This car is freakin killin me. I knew I should have bought the 69 instead. Quick engine data, im 30 over with 194 valves and a bigger cam. Unfortunatly I dont knw the cam numbers but I told the machinst to stay computer friendly. I also have a hypertech, with all the probs I was having I was going to put it in to see if it helped, when I got into it I found it already had one. So now I cant even go back to stock. It seems like this all started when I put in high octane gas. Im still having speedometer probs, I think I tweaked something when I was in it. I just bought a new cluster on ebay for 10 bucks. Hope it works. Thanks all I hope this makes sense.
