Smile New Camaro owner and need some help.

Hey guys, a little about me is I'm 17 and I live in Wisconsin. I just recently bought a 95 Camaro, unfortunatly it is the 3.4 V6 engine but I still love it. If you have any suggestions for me on how to upgrade some of my parts without spending tons of money I would be open for anything.

Re: New Camaro owner and need some help.

Save your money and get a better/faster car later. Any money you spend on this car will not be recovered. If you do any mods make them low budget mods. I drove my 90 acura integra for 120k miles and saved all my pennies to get my muscle car.

Re: New Camaro owner and need some help.

Dave with that specific v6 you are kinda SOL. However, you are at a point in your life to learn. I agree saving your money and buying your dream car. I did and ended up with several cool cars to work on.
lowbudget mods for that will be intake, exhaust, tune-up, and anything you can take of this car and put on that 99-2000 SS car you end up with in the future, I.E., MSD 6A ignition.....
Dont forget, only dumb questions are the ones not asked.
Work smarter, not harder. GOOD LUCK!!

Re: New Camaro owner and need some help.

Only thing I'd do is whatever it took to keep it running well. Use it as a DD and save up for a better V8 car. Mod the V8 car as much as you want and keep the V6 car for everyday use.

Save your coin as suggested above and apply it to your dream car.Open up a dedicated savings account at your bank and make a deposit when ever you come across the latest and greatest marketing scheme that promises HP gains over oem stock v6.

Thanks for all the help guys it really gives me motivation to save my money and not spend it on little things here and there which is my weakness. If I have any more questions on mods or anything I will come back to you all no doubt. Very helpful. Thanks again
