    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Hey guys,

My name is Candace. I've owned my 1994 firebird for 2 years now and don't see it going away any time soon! Always fixing something on it but that's what you get when the car has been reborn.

I liked the purple, but I like blue more. Also the notorious clear coat peel of the 90's hit this car pretty bad. It sat in the sun 2 owners back with a blown motor. It's previous owner also kept it outside, and same with myself. Here's a picture of it the day I bought it:

Any sort of plans for it?

While limited, there's some things you can do to the 3.4L...you just have to think outside of the box.

It's just my slow daily driver for right now but I'm buying another car. After that I have no idea where I'm going with it mechanically. Everybody does v8 swaps with them so I was thinking a turbo v6 but I have no idea yet

Turbo is possible, but I'm unsure of the tuning issues you'll face.

One thing you have on your side, it's RWD. Also, newer 60*V6 top end parts do work with the existing L32 it has. OR, you could swap in an LX9 engine, have a newer motor, make better power stock for stock and better motor to modify in general.

Yea I'm not into the idea of creating tuning nightmare. I still have a lot of research to do but I have a feeling a swap will happen

Best bang for your buck could be bolt ons and a top swap.

WOT-Tech is a good source for 60*V6 parts, the owner is an awesome machinist and loves GM V6s and BMW engines. He's down in Flordia and is an amateur circuit racer.

He's active on a few forums, he pops into grandamgt.com once in awhile, I know he's still on fullthrottlev6.com as well. forced_firebird is his username...I honestly forget if he's on this site.

Full Throttle V6 is a great forum for V6 F-bodies, and anything GM V6 powered really. I learned quite a bit about GM V6s in general from that forum. Haven't logged on there in a long time, though.

I am actually a member of full throttle v6, just haven't been on there in ages. I stick mostly on the Camaro and firebird forum, Camaro Zone. I'll have to check out full throttle again though

Other than engine mods, anything else in mind? Suspension, wheels/tires, brakes, transmission?

It definitely needs a new set of wheels, and it would be nice if the tires were at least the stock size. If I would do suspension work it would be lowered a but with my current driveway situation that's impossible (dirt + holes). Brakes I probably won't upgrade until it gets faster. I would like to change it to a 5 speed but my tranny has low miles so it will probably stay for a while.

So if you couldn't tell, I'm at a standstill with it for the most part. I want to keep it but if I get the chance to get more of a project that's a little older I probably would go for it

If that's the case, I'd say a suspension drop and a nice aggressive wheel and tire setup should be good then.

Still looks good. Honestly if you build that car up, it will kick some serious ass, and i would love to see it!

Just needs some more wetsanding and clearcoat for it to look great, tbh.

Yea the more I think about it a cam and a tune is a realistic possibility for the near future

Yea can't really see it in that picture but it needs another coat + the roof to be done. I also have another hatch with the high rise spoiler that needs to go on.
