the v6 IS worth modding, there are a few in the 12's rod is SOOOOOO close to 11's if you just want to make it alittle faster intake, exhaust, headers and a tune if you wanna shoot for low 13's or better go with nitrous or a turbo (nitrous if your broke like me)

OK, I will agree to a certian extent. The V6 isnt "worth" modding BECAUSE its already SO FREAKING EFFICIENT your horsepower per dollar isnt very good. a 312 hp 3.6L is KICK ASS! Can you mod it... heck yes. Can you get some more power... sure. Is it going to be cost effective... only you can answer that.

Lets not bash a V6 just b/c its 2 less cylinders. And lets be realisitc... we mod b/c we want to, not b/c its cost effective! Mod away, have fun, listen to other V6ers. There are some hopped up V6s out there. Will it ever be a V8... no but lets not beat that horse anymore. If GM stopped making the V6, the V8 would die VERY fast too!

Lets all ge along!

And hp/cubic in the 6 is more powerful then the ls series v8, stock or mods.Just more efficient and more modern design.

There's a more appropriate thread to discuss this in, the OP was looking for information on increasing his V6's performance, not anyones opinion on V6 vs V8.

to the OP: start with basics. bolt ons, gears (you will "feel" this more than anything else you could do*), and a tune. You will have a much more efficient car after those three, but then cost:gain ratio changes dramatically at this point.

* some exceptions. obviously.

Improve suspension so you can put ALL of your power onto the pavement without wheel hop, and lower center of gravity. Spoiler and splitter to keep your car pushed into the ground for better grip, but increase some drag. If you got the cash later on, you can start adding forced induction. Nitrous kits are a good way to go. You can research your turbos and twin turbos as well. =D Lots of stuff you can do. Every little bit helps.



I think I lol'd at one of your threads.
i think that camarofreako or whatever is still pissed cuz he got a CEL for putting headers but didnt want to tune it to get rid of the CEL. chill dude i love my v6 and plan to mod it and even in the future put a turbo if i safe enough i know its gonna be cheaper to trade it in for an SS but i dont care.

Here what I'm going to do when the money comes in

SLP CAI
Doug Thorely Shorties
GMPP Performance Exhaust (These top three can get you to high 13's)
Torque Converter(Possibly) (This might bet you to the mid 13's)

I'm looking into a torque converter as well. There is a gentlemen on this site selling one for the V6. Circle D also said if I wanted they would look at my car and build one if the one for the 6l80 didn't look compatable.

Did I miss something? Are there better gears available for the A6? If so could someone link to them please.

Chad, as you probably already know, for a M6 you can throw in probably about any gears that you could for the SS, but on the A6 our options are very limited. There are 3.55 gears out there from Richmond available for the A6. A seller here posted it would be the equivalent of around a 25 - 30lb TQ increase at the wheels.
