Cool Re: Some insight into the 3.4L OHV RWD motor

Hey russel.. Great job on all the research you did. I have been doing a little myself looking for every possible way to make my 3.4 a monster before i came across your forums the other day. I found out that i could use the heads off the 2000 grand am gt and i was gonna fab up an intake but i never looked into using the upper an lower intake from that car(duh).. Thats a great obsevation... the only problem im running into is dash clearance. i'm thinking bout making low profile motor mounts to bring the motor down a little.. What did you do to fit the motor in the engine bay? curious before i start making some custom ****... i found a nice cam for the motor i just have to do some research on the cam and see how it will affect valve lift with the new heads.. i found a stage2 chip and injectors..do you have any other suggestions, ideas or problems i might run into wen i start going through this build??

Re: Some insight into the 3.4L OHV RWD motor

dont need to do anything. assembled with all parts non-modifed (well..sorta). the engine sits 1/8th of an inch under the cowl. clears but just barely. i havent changed the motor mounts or height of the intake at all
what IS required is flattening the top of the plenum from the 3x00 motor.

there is a lot of stuff to modify. i REALLY need to sit down and do a guide lol. just gotta find the time.

im me sometime and we'll talk bout it.

94camaro,
if you would just put heads from a 99 grand am on a 3.4 v6 what would happen and could it be driveable. i would think about doing some of these mods to my car i just dont want to rebuild the motor I would change the intake and put the heads on just the pistens I dont want to realy get into it. what do you think feel free to add any coments.

I seen you put a link for the exhaust but its not working.
after you changed your car did the exhaust get louder deeper or anything?

thanks,

Jim

you cannot use the aluminum heads with the pistons from the 3.4 rwd. unless you want 14.98:1 compression. i do notreccomend it.

Re: Some insight into the 3.4L OHV RWD motor

Nice.

I saw a parts list on FTv6 yesterday, so I figured something was in the works.

Anyway, now that I talked this over with a friend the other night (the wife has a 3.4L Lumina van....if it's in pieces, it's not my doing!) and he got excited about this project.

Was there a whole lot of custom rigging involved? I looked that the pics and other than the tight squeeze under the cowl, it didn't seem like a chop job, so if it really is just swap complete top end on, pistons, water neck, and plug sensors back in....that is fair enough.

Re: Some insight into the 3.4L OHV RWD motor

This is awesome, my 3.4 is about due to be rebuilt...currently sitting at 204,000 miles. This will be a great way to get the extra power I want out of it, as well as setting me up for some boost later down the road. Thanks a TON 94Camaro. I can't wait to see the parts list made so I know exactly what I'm after.
