Hi I am new to these forums and I just wanted to show other Camaro owners my 1995 V6 3.4L, its all stock besides the K and N air filter...

I just wanted to know what you guys think of my $1600 Camaro(buying a better one after High School, only 17)

I sold her...

THAT is a $1,600 Camaro?!?!?! You have to be kidding me!

First thing I'd do is put some darker tint on it. Then, I'd work on the stereo...add an amp or two with some JL's....nothing like a good sound system.

Not a whole lot you can do to the engine to get more out of her....same old intake and exhaust. However, with the money you spend in that area, you might as well get a V8.

Seriously, keep what ya got and save your pennies for a 1SS later on.

No kidding....that Camaro looks BEAUTIFUL for $1,600!!!

I put a Flowmaster 80 series on my 2001 V6 and put dual pipes out the back. Makes good sound and probably upped the HP a bit.

Maybe some stripes over the hood or hockey stripes on the side? looks good though and welcome to the forums.

I like your exhaust bumblebee, but I think I would get a new radio and speakers first, the radio is currently broken ( broke maybe 2 months after I bought it).

and TAGURIT your camaro is amazing...

Welcome to the site. Tag does have a nice car.

I had a 94 V6 that looks like yours. Put Alpine head unit in, replaced all speakers with B/A speakers and put a tube sub in the back ditch. Sounded pretty good for spending less than 1,000.00 on it all.

From here looks like a good deal. Nice car conflict.

I agree, some tint will help you along.
Radio upgrade, with built in mp3 capabilities, and possibly a usb bay.

otherwise...Nice Camaro!

Nice car Conflict and welcome to the site! Tint and radio definitely sound like the right place to start. I also like the deeper tone of an aftermarket exhaust.

Welcome to the site Conflict.

And let me say, your Camaro is one of the nicer one's I've seen. In my opinion, I'd leave well enough alone, and just replace/fix what is necessary.

I like the "stock" look, and yours apprears to be a very nice, clean, "stock" Camaro.

So, I'd fix what's needed, and save the money you would be spending on "mods." for your next Camaro.

so does that mean my camaro is ugly for $250.00?

lol


to the OP, welcome first off

secondly, if you had the 3.8 motor, id say you could slap on a s/c to it and have a ball, but the 3.4's dont do well with that.

however, you can keep the car clean and in great shape. a nice sound system, some tint, and keep her running.

That's gorgeous for the money! I'd just have fun with it until you can afford the fifth generation Camaro.

Two 12" subs should be enough. The Six 12"s I had in my truck was excessive and I am already experiencing noticeable hearing loss at age 17...
six 12"s, in a truck, yeah i can see why you have lost some hearing.

as for sound I dont mind stock speakers its just the sony CD player in it is really old and I even took it out to try and get it to work with no avail. but the only thing wrong besides that is the clear coat on the roof is peeling and the car doesnt have A/C(the car is originally from Oregon I believe),living the desert (120 degree summers) it is a pain...

I heard from somewhere that it's fairly common for the paint on the B-pillar to start flaking and peeling. Mine does anyways.
As for stereos I put in an alpine head unit, alpine 6 inch 250w 2 ways, BMW 1600w 4 channel amp, and 2 pioneer 1000w 12" subs for under $900. But I got the amp from a friend so factor in about another $3-400 for a decent amp into that, and you'll have a system that pounds. And I'll tell ya now to save you a trip, if you go to car toys and ask for a custom built trunk box your gonna take it in the shorts lol. This place has some great boxes that are custom built for your car and w/e subs you choose for no more then $300.
http://www.subthump.com/index.html.
Hope that helps some.


(Oh and if your going to get an exhaust put on....don't get the Pace Setter Monzas with resonators. lol Hooker makes a set just like mine but a bit cheaper and with no resonators. )

WELCOME! I'd comment on your ride but can't view it from here. It sounds like a really nice ride though.

Check out Full throttle Performance Parts (FTPP.net)
they've got a great selection of 3.4L parts even engine internals. Josh York runs it, and in my experience shopping with him, he's been very helpful.

Great friggin buy, by the way...1600 bucks, I paid 5K for the 3.8L I had back in '05

in my

I got a buddy who had a stang, with no back seat, but a wall with 4 12's. getting out of that car was like getting hit with a flash bang...deaf as hell...lol

Welcome
Good buy save your $ and upgrade at a later time the more you spent the less you get later. Most cars are no investments you could stand to make $ or break even with that buy.
