    This thread, like several others in this section, appears to be a huge flaming pile of shit thanks to a few select people who dont seem to care for V6s. If you dont like em, dont come in here. Next person to flame gets a vacation. You've been warned.

    What the hell is everyones problem with the V6 now? I used to have a 3.4 Firebird in the late 90's and remember going to a few boards to help modify it. Yea, I knew it would never be a speed demon but it was fun working on the car, learning from mostly mistakes, and just making it faster than it was. Most of the time the V8 guys would chime in to give advice or assist, none of this bullshit making fun of people for having a V6, I don't understand what their problem is. I could easily look down on them for having a slower LS1 f-body and do the same thing to them that they do to the 6's but why would I even care? Trust me, I'm a hell of alot more impressed with a 13 second V6 than a mid to high 12's LS1. So anyway, whats been going on in the world of the V6's? They seem to be have a bigger aftermarket now than when I was playing with mine. Anyway, I love the fbody cars, always will, and enjoy beating the V8s and showing them that their stock LS1 can actually be beat...

    the 3.8's have a pretty big aftermarket now including some bolt on superchargers,the older v6 motors which are pretty capable i.e 2.8/3.1/3.4 have lil to no aftermarket support,other then cams and other lil things. pretty much anyone with the older 60* motor is on there own but u do have some ppl that build custom parts for those motors like turbokits/sheetmetal manifolds,direct port kits,and itb's

    www.zzperformance.com has a good selection of 3800 parts (Under Grand Prix...the GP uses 3800 Series II / III motors (L36/L26), with Eaton M90 stock on GTPs (L67/L32)). Cams, Rockers..even Turbos.

    Try zz performance...I tried posting, but the moderators didn't approve I guess of the link....

    They make quite a bit of 3800 specific stuff...mostly for GPs, but its for L36/L67 and L26/L32 Engines... Cams, rockers, turbos....

    Man, V8ers stop hating on the practical people on here, they probably bought the v6 a few years back(when Camaros/ Firebirds were more like 10-20k instead of 5-10k like today) like myself over the ls1 due to the cost, of A) the car itself B) Insurance and C) Gas. So all of you guys who just went out and bought the almost ten year old z28's, just wait for your banged out motors to give in, while we 1 owner vehicles, save cash in our 14.5 second v6's.

    I think they around the same. I get ~19-21 in suburban/city driving and 30 I think driving highway. Something like that. I have a '95 3.4. The 3.8's are better then the 3.4's.

    my uncles 02 Firebird CE gets around 18-20 town and 25-27 highway, and my 99 3.8l gets about 23-26 town 29-34 highway. I think it gets better gas than an 8r
