check out the site firebird******* mod guide helped me a whole hell of alot when I first started modding my old 3.8L...I would say buy my old modded out V6, and strip her, but its at some dealership in tacoma.

BTW in my experience heres the best online store for 3.8L parts. FTPP

LET me get this RIGHT? You saved $20K by yourself and at age 17???

Do you mind me asking what you do for a living? When I was 17 I only made $5000 the entire year. Granted that was back in 1974 but my daughter is 21 and still thinks I have a money tree in my back yard.

Please tell!!!

Here's a list of what my V6 had...it was a Y87 too (Meaning it had 3.42 gears and Zexel-Torsen T-2 Series diff , not 3.08...big difference)

Whisper Lid, SLP Cold Air Intake, Ceramic Coated Pacesetter Headers, Random Tech Cat, Magna Flow Catback, Jet PCM, PI 2100 Stall Torque Converter, MSD DIS-4 ignition, Accel Super DIS Coil, Nology Spark Plug Wires, ASP Pulley, Eibach Springs, Bilstein Shocks, BMR subframe connector/sway bars/strut tower brace, Custom shift kit w/vette servos(BIG DIFFERENCE..BTW Transgo makes some good Shift kits)

I also had found an aftermarket Intake for the 3.8L...but I'd traded her in for the Z28 I have now.

Lucky girl...When I was 13, I was working full time at a liquor store in chicago to help keep the lights on. Be grateful of what you have, and dont take it for granted. When I was your age Id have killed to be in your shoes!

If you can don't work and focus on your education! thats the reason I took the military route, instead of the school route. Didn't have the oppurtunity to put all of what I had in school/football. I had 2 full time jobs throughout my 4yrs in highschool, so lets say I slept more that attended class. Still graduated with a 3.0 gpa..but well over 400 cutted classes. Go to school and become marketable in a field that you enjoy. Then have fun!

Why not break the 69 SS out of the garage to get the job done? Why are you wanting to race using your V6 car????

Honestly, I don't know enough about the Beamer to help give you the edge.

I'm concerned that the Z4 will take you stock for stock....but again. Not enough knowledge.

Easiest bang for the buck? Add some NOS. TFord's got some info up there for ya, but there's not too much you can do to make it REALLY super fast...other than getting a V8.
