i know ur problem, i am starting out with an automatic v6 engine, i don't recommend super charging it, the best thing to do is either get yourself some nos, (perferably if you have automatic) or make small changes to boost your horsepower. Change the tires, and also if you have flowmaster make sure you have a good exhuast system or the horsepower will not change and you will look like bad with a flowmaster that has no benefit except sound. also i reccomend to add small things, if you don't want invest in this car, such as fuel intake, or if all else fails i suppose you can change it to a v8 but not reccomended. So your options like mine are nos, or small changes to every aspect of the car. :flash:

I already posted this in the Pontiac Firebird section, thought this would help you out...
Here's some things to address to run low 12's...

Cooling System-
160 Thermostat (Manual Fan Switch (couple dollars)

RK Sport Aluminum Driveshaft 3.42 Gear in LSD

RK Sport Headers 3" Catilytic Converter with 3" S-Pipe B&B Tir-Flo Catback
Fuel System-
Walbro Fuel Pump 255ltr/hr. Intank pump
Autometer FP Gauge and A/F Ratio Gauge

High Quality Plug Wires
NGK TR6 Plugs (1 step colder for N2O use)
NGK TR55 Plugs (stock ehat range for N/A use)

SLP Cold Air Induction
Removed MAF Screen
Ported TB
Ported & Polished Upper/Lower Manifold

TNT Nitrous System with WOT Switch

BMR Lower Control Arms
Removed Front Sway Bar

Vig. 3200 stall Pump #8 Converter
TransGo Shift Kit (set at Level 3)

The majority of these things can either be done for free or bought very inexpensively....except the exhaust, converter and N2O kit of course.

Get yourself a cold air intake and headers.That would be a good start!

Boosting is easier on internals than Nitrous. It builds up cylinder pressure much more violently than boost, boost is gradual, not a sudden rush. The fastest V6 fireturd I know of is running on boost. its actually a 93 formula, and the guy blew his lt1... and did a 89 turbo t/a swap :eek: I think the last I heard of it, it was in the 11's, and a daily driver.

I say the best thing for you to do is wait... save up your money and buy a faster car. Lt1/ls1....something that has a better go fast after market. Im not sure which v6 you have, but if you had the series II 3800... you know it can handle boost, and they are very stout little engines. 3.8l is probably one of gm's best engines... 3.8 and the 5.7.. top two from gm.

just be patient, sit and wait till you can get a car that has a better aftermarket(for the engine)

Consider a swap?! You can purchase an entire driveline with all the accessories and computer for about $1500.00!! This will truly endear you to this car!!

i havent done it myself, but i have heard that its a nightmare to change a v6 to a v8, i would recomend selling the rs and buying a z28

but thats just my opinion, and opinions are like assholes, everybodys got one and most of em stink

02-18-2002, 10:55 AM
drop it off a cliff lol not really.

now i only say that because of the pure lack of aftermarket response, other than some s/c kits, theres basically not much out for the 3.8l.

ive beaten a few othe V6s, but im still way behind my brothers 2001 SS. I gotta give him some props. It doesnt look like ill be catching up soon either since hes just done more to it.

dont diss me cause i drive a honda i love chevys too

02-18-2002, 01:48 PM
thanks guys ive figured out what im going to do!! sell it and buy a z28! hey it has 140000 how much can i sell it for??95 3.4 good condition

02-18-2002, 11:21 PM
very little, sorry

02-20-2002, 12:09 AM
how much is little?

Shoot it out of a cannon!! Seriously, there is nothing you can do to this car to make it a performer, look at the HP to weight ratio.

aabout2000$ 3000$$

That's about what I was gonna say, maybe less with that kind of mileage. Sucks, I know it...

If you want fast do a motor & tranny swap. I like the 3.8L V6 turbo idea, my buddy has a mint 89 turbo t/a w/ 14,000 miles. With some mods, you could be flying. Or another idea would be to send you car to Lingenfelter with $50,000.:smoker2:

The master of disaster is here...
I have been working on my v-6 for a year, I have done so much to it. The list is to long. There isn't many bolt ons for you camaro, since I know, because well, I have the same car, motor, and about the same mileage. Check out my website for cool things to do. There is a lot, but it takes some money.
