Can someone who has experience with the following or knowledge on it
answer the following questions.
I have a 95 camaro 3.4, and am thinking of the following mods;
Low temp Thermo.
Jet stage 2 chip
What kind of gains does each of these give?
Does anybody have any experience doing these mods on a 3.4, is there a
noticable performance gain?
Is it worth the money?
1. Pulleys - Very bad idea
2. Low Thermo - No real reason
3. Stage 2 Chip - Needs the low thermo, so you need Stage 1
NOTE: 2 and 3 will cause emissions test failure.
Pulleys will give you horse power, until you loss eletrical power. They are
sticking intended for tracks when you do not need to rely on long term
The exhaust is your best bet, at least a hi-flo cat and cat back exhaust.
FIPK will help marginally, note, the effectiveness will increase with a
freer flowing exhaust. Also note, the Z28 with a 350 uses the same air box,
the effectiveness of the FIPK compared to just the simple K&N OEM
replacement on a 3.4 would be of great debate as well. Never seen actual
Dyno comparisons on a V6. HP gain is subject to debate, and equipment
Hope this help.
There's not really much you can do to the 3.4L to improve performance for
the budget you're indicating. I'd get a nice stereo instead, at least then
you'd have something you could enjoy. Any of those mods would do basically
nothing (might add a little to the buttmeter, but nothing in real life.)
The exhaust would sound really raspy and farty if u went that way. (V8 guys
would point and laugh)
Sell it and get an LT1/LS1. You'll thank yourself, and never regret
it...until you have to pay your insurance. D'oh! :)
