it probably wont even hang with an lt1. Id say he give a bolt on 3.8 a good run for the money.

If its really that slow with all that money/effort, seems like a huge waste to me. But, to each his own.

Sounds mean as hell… gotta wonder what people say when he tells them it's a 3.4L V6.

The fact it spun a bearing after 200K made me think about the mortality of my engine (213K).

Wondering how fast it is, too: comments from 6 months ago said he'd post up the numbers when he got it dynoed and that he's adding nitrous. Either blew it up already, forgot about youtube, or hasn't gotten it done.

He has a video I think of him doing a run with nitrous

Didn't Kelly Veit see this car IRL and take a few pictures of the engine and post them on here?

Haha I'll take that bet (srs), I looked at the mods and I'm very skeptical. A stock 3.8 MAYBE, a full bolt ons one like mine or Battousai's or Eddie's? Nah

Here's his FQuick:
http://www.fquick.com/garages/Chevro...ro/1993/33201/

The only listed track time listed is slower than what my essentially stock Y87 3.8L did.
Quote:
Took my car to the track on the bottle.
What do you guys think? I took it to the carlisle 1/8th mile track while up there for gm nationals. This was on my c5 wheels and street tires.



60': 2.08
330': 6.24
1/8th: 9.8
MPH: 70

Is that good for a 3.4 on a 50 shot? (No tuning or anything)
My 3.8L Y87 setup with stock engine/trans/log manifolds (not even the tubular manifolds) did 9.6s and 9.7s all day long in the 1/8th (with any 275/40/17 tires).
I replied with:
Quote:
Sounds about right. My best with an essentially stock ENGINE 3.8 was an ET of 9.67. Had a Whisper lid, aluminum driveshaft, Y87 package, and stock V8 catback. If you don't have 3.42 gears, your 60' is not bad.
He replied:
Quote:
I swapped the 3.42 4 channel rear into my car. I was spraying off the line. My motor is fresh but the trans still has 211k miles on it

Well it has ported heads, gasket matched, ported LIM and plenum. 252h cam. .020 over, forged pistons, and 1.6 rockers. Not like porting the heads helped much anyway, they suck
Also, the car is an A4.

Well I mean my best et n/a was [email protected] in the 1/8th before the mods. Maybe I would turn a faster time on my stock wheels+tires instead of my 18" c5s in the rear. Also since I last ran the car I got a new hood which is made of fiberglass, which is pretty light compared to my stock one.
For comparison, my 1987 Jeep ran consistent 11.2 in 4-HI on 31" tires with 3.55s.

And lately, he had this to say about the future of the car:
Quote:
Once I get another daily driver I want to swap a 5.3 into it. If you are going to swap 3.4->3.8 you will have to the same amount of work as an lsx.

I hate to bring up a dead thread... BUT... This car no longer has a 3.4 in it. He is currently swapping in an LT1 The built 3.4 is going in my car if everything works out this fall. I currently have his headers on my car. Waiting for more money to snag his engine. Here is a link to both of his threads over on CamaroForums. There's also a link down there to my progress thread. Check it out!


93 Camaro Build thread *LOTS OF PICS* - Camaro Forums - Chevy Camaro Enthusiast Forum

Socom's V6-> V8 Swap thread! - Camaro Forums - Chevy Camaro Enthusiast Forum

Chaotic's Progress Thread - Camaro Forums - Chevy Camaro Enthusiast Forum

As far as I know is was beyond LT1 power when he was on spray racing his friends trans am. Don't quote me on that though because I'm not completely sure. Just though I'd give you all some entertainment over on our side of the fence

Why would you want that engine? Besides of for the pure doing something different thing? I mean I get the V6 thing, I have a built 3.8, but it will at least keep up with V8's and make its self worth-while being "quick" and different. I dont mean to hate, I get a lot of shit for not doing a V8 swap, but I just couldn't waste time on a 3.4 and still be slow. Maybe in something smaller and lighter like a Grand Ma GT

Because when I get his motor, and do the 3400/3.4 hybrid head swap, ill be in lt1 territory without spray. I find it more impressive to have a really fast built v6 than have a really fast stock v8. That's just me though. It shows how much you're willing to put into a car. I've thought about the v8 swap and honestly i would love to do it but it's more expensive to go that route.
