I have a 1998 V6 camaro. It has almost NO power and I would like to
upgrade. What are some good things to look into. I've searched but it's
hard to find stuff for a V6 and I think that the year 98 is a hard year for
stuff. Money isn't really an option but I would not like to spend
thousands, you know what i'm talkin about. I dont even know of a good
exhaust because it's only a V6, what would even sound decent and not like
Thanks to anybody that helps I would really appreciate it alot.
You make fun of what you are really afraid of... and thats us......
Pacemaker has headers for about $250 via JC Whitney, a Borla Cat Back
kit is about $700 and sounds really nice. If cash is an issue, check
out the Flowmaster cat back kits on Ebay. They go for about $300
pretty regularly. The V-8 kit is exactly the same for the V6. If all
else fails, go the supercharger route. <g> Only about $3500, IIRC
For V6 parts, go to www.rksport.com and you can look at

How not to make your V6 run/sound better.... Well let me just say I have
the same car, 98 w/ V6 - bought it brand new. I'll tell you what I have
tried, (cheap routes). I had the single exhaust changed with a flowmaster
(cat back only) and had original camaro tips added, looks great and sounds
awesome, sounds really mean - at idle only. Once I get RPM's up though,
sounds like a pissed off bumble bee. Dont do it. I had to go get them
Next thing I did was add the K&N air filter (filter only) because I could
not find the complete kit on K&N's website like you can easily find for a
V8....... Well that was a nice thing to have for about $90.00 but no
difference in Horsepower from any of these modification..(at least that I
can tell)... So if you find a way to make a V6 run anything like my roomates
V8 - night and day, then let me know as well.
