I just found this post searching for 3.4 stuff - I think I learned a little since the last time. When I started this thread I thought I was limited to 82-92 engines.
Novaderrik, now I am leaning towards a 93-95 3.4 F-body engine - hope they have iron heads, pretty sure they do. I'll have to use a carb - if I tried to go the ECM/sfi route the car would never move again.
pdq67, it's my understanding that the 2.8, 3.1, and 3.4 RWD blocks are dimensionally the same. There may be some minor changes (internal ribs for strength), but none that effect the physical size (from what I've read so far). I also think that all the RWD FI 60* V6s use the 884 iron heads.
I'm also pretty sure that if you want a 3.4, you need a 3.4 block.
There is a possible snag:
"Beginning in 1993, there was no T-5 available with the GM V8. All 4th generation F-body T-5s have a Ford T-5 bellhousing bolt pattern (Figure 22-3). The 26-spline 1?-inch input shaft is similar to the earlier V8 input shaft, but the pilot is longer than that used in the earlier models (Figure 22-4). The front bearing retainer is the same as used on the 1983-1992 GM T-5."
Do you see any reason that the Camaro V8 T-5, S-10 V6 bellhousing, and 93-95 Camaro 3.4 won't work? Maybe not, since the 3.4 crank seems to have a deeper pilot, but I don't know anything about the diameters. It'll have to use a HTOB.
