    V6 Mods

    I have a 2000, v6 camaro with a 80 series flowmaster cat back system...and i already take down most other v6ers around me....but im looking to do more...i was wondering what you all are doing to your v6, thats reasonable in price...and if anyone has a cutout, or a slp cai, i wanna know if that lost them throttle response, or low end.

    none of those mods should make u loose power, a small nitrous shot is always a good mod, headers and a Y pipe are good mods aswell

    Juice(nitro) is the best bang for the buck, but think of juice as a Hott slut. You wanna hit it, but your scared what ittl do. if you dont know what your messing with then do alot of research 1st

    lol I just think its is the best performance mod for a sixxer man, put a shot on and boom your beating up all sorts of cars with you v6 fbod. Hell I dont even have Nitrous. The times that nitrous sixxers put down impress me.

    don't get me wrong man...
    my v6 had an slp lid, stall, higher gears, headwork, upped suspension, exhaust, headers, and a tune.

    nitrous is nice if you plan on leaving it on the motor forever, because the juice is like crack, once you use it your motor will never be the same without it....
    my v6 was pretty quick, lower mid 14s....
    sad thing is the 3.8l v6 is not a motor built for performance, no matter what you do to a v6 you will never see the results that you would from a motor built for performance.
    and i don't mean go buy an ls1... i had a v6, that people mistook for a formy.
    I'm saying a v8 reacts better to mods than a v6...
    EXAMPLE: if a mod adds a said 3hp to a v6, it adds 9hp to a v8

    so don't rip on me for saying v6's aren't meant for speed, I had one and am looking for another one for a dd!!

    two words... grand national.

    they had 3800s and everyone knows their fast. not the exact same engine (not to mention their boosted) but their the same displacement.

    intense racing sells good stuff for v6s. i just posted a vid of a car they built that runs 8s.

    they sell modified heads and cams and other stuff.

    if you have the money they are effin sweet.

    i cant say ive ever bought anything from them. who else does head work on 3800? and does anybody make an intake manifold for them or is port work all you can do.

    Yeah those 3800's are not built for performance. Hell there aren't any stock blocks running like...11's, 10's, 9's or 8's....

    They are weak in NA form I will agree there but with power adders they run pretty damn good.
