colts 95 camaro

custom paint

95 camaro SS Super Six

3.4 3400 top end swap. the biggest reason that people cant seem to get much power out of the rwd 3.4 engine is that the intakes have many design flaws and the boat anchor crappy cast iron heads. the 3400 fwd engine top end has bigger intake runners, aluminum heads with bigger valves and many more little things that just make them a better design to help the engine produce more power. if anyone wants more info on doing this swap let me know and i will provide info as needed

pulling the engine

tore down

begging reassembley. to do this swap you will need to use the 3400 pistons or your compression will be around 14:1

the aluminum heads are on. always use the head gaskets that match the pistons you decide to use. the 3400 pistons will give you about 9.5:1 as the 3.4 pistons will give around 14:1

i used the 3400 keith black pistons as this car is a daily driver

engine reassembled with 3400 parts

engine and trans together. running the 4L60E with a b&m shift kit and shift control module

there is alot of re-wireing to be done to make the 3400 parts work correctly with the 3.4 pcm

msd blaster coils


dont have pictures of everything that was done but i had to fix some major damage to rear passenger quarter panel as well as shaved all trimlines, shaved the antenna, embeded camaro in the rear filler panel was filled and the body kit was molded to the fenders along with the installation of a fiberglass ss hood

after putting the body kit on i hit a deer and yes i used the same bumper after alot of fiberglass work

shaveing the body lines

z06 vette wheels

Colt, what size rocker arms are needed, did you change the Cam, and any specifics on the wiring needed. I am just about to start my swap and have been gathering all information that can be useful. I believe i am going to go with the same conversion you did. 3400 top end, 3400 pistons, 3.4 block.
