I've got a 94 firebird with a 3.4l and 5 speed trans. I bought my car in August for 500 dollars, all that was wrong with it was blown head gasket. I pulled the motor and did a complete build. Seal pro cam little over stock, new push rods, springs and comp cam 1.6 roller rockers, double roller timing chain, port and polished intakes and heads, pace setter headers, and chrom valve covers. You can see the pics on my profile. I have a 3.73 posi rearend waiting to go in and new eibach pro lowering springs. Currently searching for more parts like a one piece aluminum driveshaft and other goodies, lol. I've been goin back and fourth on what wheels, not sure on what I want.

Aside from fixing the damage from the PO.... I have done mostly appearance at this point. That includes C4 corvette sawblades (17x 9.5 at all 4 corners), RK Sport Front Valence, Ebay Aero (Sunoco) hood, tint, and a stereo system.

Come tax time its getting cammed, exhaust, and hopefully juiced (nitrous).

I'm in the beginning of modding my 96 camaro. I first must get it back in good working conidition from sitting so long. I've own mine for 7 year or so but its been sitting for 4 yrs with a blown head and cooling problems.

-I've swapped the original 3800 motor (210k mi) with a a used 3800 100k motor. Added some paint to the intake, valve cover,.... and some other parts under the hood.
- Factory air box replace with a cone filter (in need of revisiting)
- Dual out turbo exhaust,
- New cat.
- B&M short throw shifter
- Next to do is a paint job. I've been fighting with the maintenance issues the past month so I have gotten nowhere with the body work.
-I plan to swap the interior to black.
-and I see some suspension upgrades in the near future as well.

okay let's see what i can get out of the vague depictions travis offers us.

1. he painted his stock suspension pieces RED. I like that.

2. he transplanted a 3.4 into his car (formerly a 3.8) also nice!

3. you like nos energy drinks?

Exterior mods was putting the stock chrome wheels from the Z28 onto the sixer since the Z is on skinnies and drag radials. Maybe a muffler or a cutout for the sixer in the future. Otherwise, I'm gonna keep it stock.

95' Firebird 3.4 t5. Bought about 8'ish months ago. True cold air intake (inside wheel base), 2.5 exhaust straight back to Thrush muffler (no cat). Shortened gear shifter. That's about it. Pretty much maintenancing it back into good health. The best mod out there!
