is it worth it
hey there i got a 93lt1 my wife wont stay out of it so i came acroos an 02 6cyl firebird like i said its for the wife mine is a 93 lt1. i wanna get it up in hp cheap so i was thinking electric fan conversion and throttle body spacer it will be cheap and easy i dont feel the need to mod out a 6 cly i'd rather put money into an ls1 or lt4 but like i said i can change the fan and put a throttle body spacer in for less than 300......will i gain considerable (15-20) hp

Re: is it worth it
It has an electric fan already. You may want to have a tune done on it and possibly add a little more gear to make it feel snappy. If it has 3.23s put some 3.73s in it.

Re: is it worth it
there are mods for the v6 motors, but like was said before, it already has an electric fan, and a tb spacer wont do anything. you could put headers on it. i dont know if anybody makes lts for it, but i think some companies make shorties. i think some companies make cams for them too

A site specifically for the 60-degree V6 family of engines:

Source for performance parts:


You aren't going to get anything out of a throttle body spacer, and will end up with throttle cable issues.
