    Hey 200hp ain't bad! Just a few mods like exhaust and intake and you can get it near 225+. That has more hp than a stock 79 t/a with the 403 olds motor rated at a whopping 179hp!!

    97 Firebird

    It depends what year, but 95 1/2 - 02 sixes have 3.8 V6 rated at 200 hp and 225 lb/ft of tourque. Hp at the wheels varies and you should dyno it to check for yourself but likely a totally stock 3.8 will dyno 160-170 ish at the wheels.

    At the wheels you should have about 162 Hp and 165 Tq. But like the others said don't be discouraged! With a full exhuast and a decent cam you can move that to about 225 RWHP. Personally, all I have is a Highflow cat, Loudmouth exhaust and lid and I put down 181 RWHP 215 RWTQ. It just takes time and a little investment!! !!

    Completely agree!! I haven't spent that much money on my car, but had I saved what I have spent I could have an LS1 in there now!!

    The LS1 is only in the Z-28 and SS. The V-6 is still considered a F-Body but that has nothing to do with the engine size. The V-6's are considered 3800's (depending on year model) and the Z-28/SS are considered LS1's. It's just the name of the engine.

    97 Firebird

    The LS1 is the name of the engine in the 98-02 V8 Firebird/Camaros. It is the third generation of the LS1 engine. In 93-97 Fbodies, the engine was the LT1 V8. The V6 engine is technically called the L36, or the 3800 series 2, which was in base model firebirds from 95 1/2 - 02.
