1995 3.4 v6 camaro modifications and general 4th gen discussion

OK. So I don't see any threads that people are really discussing the 4th gens. I think this might start one. Hopefully. I want to hear your stories you have about your 4th gen. I want to hear about the mods you have put into it or about how well you have taken care of it and loved it. Talk about your 4th gen. List what you what mods you want to do to it.


I want to do a lot of things done to my car. I want to get headers, an exhaust, and a cai. That's all for the performance mods for now. Maybe I will want more later. Maybe some mods for the handling too. Ultimately, I just want it to be a cruising car that looks good and has decent power, and not a hot rod. I know I won't get a lot of power with this engine, but that's okay. You do with what you have, right? I'll get a v8 later in life, in camaro or corvette form. I want to do a lot to it visually, like leather seats and nice sporty rims, and new tints. I'll fix up the paint job a bit too. So what do you guys think? Will it be a pretty good car to go to the beach in and have a great time driving it around? I'm going to give this car to my little bro when he turn 17 in like 6 years. I will have my 5th gen by that time. I'm sure he will take care of it because he likes it a lot right now and he is a good kid. I think this car will look bad ass by the time he will get it. I'm sure he will get stares in the high school parking lot because that 4th gen will be a rare sight. I am okay with giving my little bro with this camaro because its a v6, so its a great first car to have.

Sorry about this being so long. I'm sure alot of you wont read all of this. It's just that after I got out of class by 8 pm, I was pretty motivated to write this thread. I love driving my camaro.

P.s. the 3.4l v6 engine is a pretty decent engine. Here is a video of a British sports car with the 3.4l v6 camaro engine in it.

I put an $80 Cold Air Intake in mine (forgot name) and thats all I want to do right now. Everything is stock. The FlowMasters that were on it were REALLY bad so I had to go to the junk yard and get a cheap single exhaust for now. I want to eventually get window tint, new rims (the stock ones are getting really bad) and some exterior work. I just bought the black signal lights (blinkers and the rear ones). I also put new tires on it in the summer/fall. Car is bairley driven right now (only 15 so I have to wait). Oh and I also want to paint the "CAMARO" on the trunk black (white right now). My brother is 8 right now. He is in LOVE with my car lol. If I still have it and don't sell it (car is worth 4k) I might give it to him. V6 POWER BABY!! haha...

I don't want to do too many mods to it already...
1) It is a V6
2) In a few years I am going to buy a V8 so I will save up my money for mods for the V8.

the reason why im not selling my car is because i'll get like $3,000-$1,000 and that doesnt seem alot to me. i would much rather sell it for $5,000. i think thats how much my dad paid for it in 2000.

True. It depends on a lot of things tho. Like paint, interior, engine, hp. But mine can easily go for $4000 because I have brand new things on it. Within 5years it may go down to $3500 depending on the condition on he car. You never know what would happen. I try to keep mine as nice as possible. No racing, burnouts, fooling around to look cool. I always cover it, hoping to get more for it in the long run. See where I am comming from?

Honestly, I would assume that would be kinda expensive.. Have you looked into molded letters that fit into the indents? I have stainless steel ones on mine, they were about 80 dollars, and the black polyurethane letters were $55

Yeah me too. When I bought it the car just had a fresh, cheap paint job. But it was in good condition.

Luckily in MT you can work at 15, and I work for my dad so I was guaranteed a job. few more months and you'll be able to get a job. with all that extra cash it's much easier to buy upgrades personally I'm just saving for an 02 SS, the only thing I've got for my Camaro is a CAI

a good site for hard to find performance parts for the 3.4L is FTPP.net
a good site for knowledge is firebird******* and their forum is pretty much as close as you'll get to ls1tech for the v6 crowd

The only mod on my 94 3.4L V6 camaro is an K&N filter. I'll leave the mods to my 3rd gen I'm buying later this week. I'll use the 94 as a second car. maybe down the road when I have the extra money and time, I'll dump some money into the V6 to see what can be done. It's fun the way it is right now, even in the snow.
BTW: my camaro handles fine in the snow for a camaro, its ice that sucks. In the rain, its kinda of fun.

Well, since you wanted a story...

We've had our '95 since 6/27/95 and have had our '02 since 11/3/01 and both are still factory original without any mods. The '95 is my sister's daily driver and has 90k miles. The '02 is my mom's daily driver and it has 16k miles. We've never wanted to modify either one because they are perfect as is. Fast, sound good, reliable, great cars.

If I had a V6, I'd definitely modify it, especially if it didn't have the Y87 package to get the Z28 exhaust pipes, steering rack, etc. I don't like the brown straw exhaust pipe the V6 Camaros came with standard.

hey all, i kinda found this thread to be what im looking for.. it seems the mods on the 3.4l is quite limited, i was looking to put on some exhaust of some sort. I went talked to a local muffler guy today, told me i wouldnt want dual true exhaust on my v6 ( im still learning!) but could still give me dual tips with flowmaster muffler, to me sounds like there are no performance upgrade on doing that.. is there?
im looking to get just about 30hp more.. any ideas?

Dont get the flowmaster cat back for the 4th gen you'll actually lose horsepower with that catback. Your best bet would be a magnaflow catback IMHO, check both websites I posted above, get headers and intake and throttle body. Then get a good tune. I forget what gears your 3.4L has stock, but they'll have that info on firebird*******. I had the Y87 package on my 3.8L and it came with 3.42's which were great. You can get good shift kit for cheap (transgo) and vette servo's for your tranny (if you've got an A4)
