V6 - 350 Conversion!!!!?

I have a 1994 Camaro 3.4L V6. Would a Carburated 350 fit fine? If so is that all, or would I have to do any other mod's to the Powertrain and Suspenion?

Yes, the 350ci will fit. I'm not sure about the V6 vs V8 motor mounts, but I'd put new ones in anyway. Since the 3.4L is based on a 60* block and the 350ci is based on a 90* block, I don't think the bellhousings will match up so a new tranny would be needed. Given the opportunity, an upgrade to the rear would be a good idea, but not a necessity.

BTW, welcome to the site.

I just edited my first post to reflect the difference in blocks, so please check again. As for the suspension, at the very minimum you will need the V8 equipped F-body struts/springs to compensate for the heavier motor.

350 swap

The K-member is drilled different on the V6. The motor mounts are different between the LT1 and the 3.4 V6/3800 (96-up) and also the LS1. The transmissions are also different. If you go with a carb 350 you will need a different trans to go with it. You will also need that crossmember. You have several different choices, TH400,TH350,TH700R4,4L60E,4L80E. You will also need a different Torque Arm, and driveshaft. The V6 Torque Arm & Driveshaft are quite different from the V8 cars. This information goes for the 93-02 Camaro/Z28/SS & Trans Am/Firebird/Firehawk. The distributor will be up against the firewall, and it IS a tight fit!! All of this can be done, and can be done afforably. A wrecked donor Z28 would be the best help for your swap, or trade up to a Z28 and start modifications! Good Luck with your project!
