I think bad flex plate...If you didnt match the correct teeth to go with the starter and flex plate it's warped now if it wasn't already. A missing tooth can do that too. I had a 95 z28 that made a high pitch scretch when it warped. I later installed a high torque mini starter that wouldn't break but the noise was still there. New Flex plate...and count the teeth dont go by the year, could've been swapped at one piont.
