It sounded like a pissed off weed whacker. those "lochness" stories are probably fictional by all means. You should just save some cheese and advance to a more finer motor with a couple more cylinders, so you can experience a real ride. but no offense man, v6 camaros are just not cool.
If the Camaro sells were anything like Mustangs sells then you would see that if V6's didnt sell or exist the V8 models wouldnt last long either. Great V6 sells keep the Line going IMHO. I had a better explanation but couldnt put it into the right words.

Re: Some insight into the 3.4L OHV RWD motor

I don't know much about cars but my great aunt owned a 94 v6 camaro with 70000 miles and I got it after she had a stroke. Not the greatest situation but I'm gonna roll with it. I was very interested in this post and bringing my v6 up another level. I have to swap out the spark plug wires because they're done. About how much after I purchase/find the parts would it take for a reputable person to do the work on my car??

Re: Some insight into the 3.4L OHV RWD motor

well since those are all v8 parts -- none of them.

the only thing you can use on the 3.4 is gm parts. there is no aftermarket for the 1993-1995 3.4 in terms of heads, cranks, rods, etc.

check around and you'll find them on ebay. get them from a 2000+ Grand Am GT with the 3.4 and you are fine.

Re: Some insight into the 3.4L OHV RWD motor

Ah ok, I apologize for my ignorance, I know very little about cars I've always been fascinated and I'm getting a chance to do some minor things under the hood. Just did spark plug/spark plug wiring learned oil change air intake and the like. So I'm a newbie . I have a few questions.

1. ) I have the stock 3.4 no mods thus far. What would you recommend to start out?

2. ) Does having a chrome air intake with 2 pipes that goes to the bottom of the car with a K & N filter help on gas?

3. ) Is the 3.4L considered a sports car for insurance purposes. I know dumb question I'm just curious. I live in Mass and our system blows, I'm still paying for a ticket from 5 years ago.

4. ) I love the car, it was skippin a cylinder because the 5th spark plug wire was totally corroded it. It's still make a lil bit of a funny noise I was wondering if I taped it you guys could give me some insight on to what I should do. I know a lot of mechanics are dirt bags, no offense, and I don't want to get ripped off. I'm a student I can't afford unneccessary costs.

5. ) What do you recommend for a catback exhaust for my 94??

I'd appreciate the help. After I changed those spark plugs/wiring it roared back to life. I didn't gap them however, didn't have the necessary tools I got ac delco spark plugs do you recommend I gap them?

Cheers, Jon

Re: Some insight into the 3.4L OHV RWD motor

94camaro,

you remind me of myself. Any engine can make awesome power. Either in relatively stock form, or in highly modified form. Every engine has the potential to be a very efficient power maker.

I took a ford 2.8L V6 and turned it into frankenstein. Using a mix of factory and racing parts from the US, Brazil Australia and Europe. the only part that was fabricated was a sheet metal intake.

Another one of my projects was my friends 1992 Mustang LX 5.0L We kept the stock bottom end, added AFR heads port matched to a cut and ported Cobra intake and larger intake and throttle body. It was rounded off with a Ford E cam and injectors/fuel pump. I those were the bulk of the performance mods, save for the exhaust. But I saw that car go from a dead stop up to 80 mph less than one car length behind a Viper GTS with Exhaust. It did have suspension and other mods, but the engine was all matched components. So it flowed as well as it possibly could.

People sometimes need to stop and remember the engines efficiency at making power depends entirely on how efficiently it can get air into the combustion chamber, then how well it can get it out. One spot where this is slowed slows it down everywhere else.
