Question How Much HP does a 95 V6 3.8L Have?

I have been given an opportunity to buy a stock V6 1995 Camaro (3.8L Engine) with around 70,000 miles on it EXTREMELY cheap ($300 ish).

It has some body damage (needs a new nose, fender, & hood) but short of that it seems ok.


The question I'm wondering is, how much horsepower does a 1995 V6 3.8L Camaro have stock? I don't expect it is much and it probably won't affect my decision but I am curious to know the answer.

There were some 95's made with the 3.8....it came in mid-year. 200hp at the flywheel is right. At the wheels you're looking at between 150 and 160 for an auto and 160 and 170 for a manual if it's healthy. Those motors are bulletproof so unless it's over 300000 miles it could be a decent daily driver if that's what you're after.

I'm debating buying the vehicle. I was mistaken when I first looked at it.... it does NOT have 70,000 miles on it IT HAS 170,000 on it. It was in a wreck and damaged the hood, driver side fender and nose. Additionally, the metal around the headlight seems bent, but I don't think there is any frame damage. Additionally, the "shocks","supports", or whatever you want to call them for the rear trunk hatch do not support themselves.

If I buy it, I can get it for around $300.

It is a V6 3800 with a K&N intake already installed and dual exhaust (I don't know anything about the exhaust though, other than it has dual tips).

I know of another camaro in this area with a blown engine that has a perfect body, so I could get all of the body parts (and then some) for about $350..... so $300 for this camaro with some body damage and $350 for another with engine trouble..... total cost: $650+Paint work (The body damage camaro is silver, the engine blown one is green).

Any thoughts guys?

You could part out the $300 170K mile one for way more than $300. I can't beleive you found a car that new with what I would consider "minor problems" for so cheap.

Sorry guy I just saw question, I could have answered for you. You already know 200HP, but I don't see the torque so I will add that. 225 ft lb @4,000RPM. Why spend the money burning gas in a Z28 when you can get just about the same power in a V6 burning less gas.

Sorry for being late! But better late then never they say.

Re: How Much HP does a 95 V6 3.8L Have?

Yeah I just saw this post too. I have the same engine in my 1996. Yes the 1996 came with the 3.8l v6 3800 series II engine. These engines are great and while you will not do as well as a v8 at the track you will get a fast car with lots of spunk. I enjoy my 1996 and I got it for 500$ with some body damage and very little trouble with the transmission. I would say get the car that runs. I believe you would spend less money fixing it up. But honestly if you can get both for the prices you quoted I would get both and place the engine from the wrecked one with the engine in the good body. Then you will have spare parts and can possibly rebuild the engine from the other car.

Re: How Much HP does a 95 V6 3.8L Have?

You would have to look at the car in person to see how bad of shape it is in, I'm talking brakes, interior, radiator, tires, plastics, fluid leaks, etc. It would be fun to fix it up a little & sale it for a profit but if it's in really bad shape it might be more trouble than it's worth. The 3.8 is an okay motor, it's fun to drive because it has a good bit of torque but I doubt you will be quicker than most new cars. but it's a camaro so it's still a cool car.

Re: How Much HP does a 95 V6 3.8L Have?

Check the door codes. If either of them have the Y87 package, buy that one!! It is basically a Z28 without the V8. And just to add to what the other fellas said, I was looking at a 1992 Z28 when I found my 1997 3.8. They have the same amount of hp, the z had a touch more torque, but since I have 3.42 gears & posi (part of the Y87 package) I am pretty sure a race would be just about even between the two...plus my 1997, had lower miles, was in better shape, cheaper, a one-owner car, & is a convertible.
