    3100 V6

    Anyone know any good, not too expensive upgrades for a 3.1 V6 in an '01 Malibu?

    i know of a few companies that sale some parts..check out mantapart.com, rsmracing.com, and i think there is a link somewhere on this site to another vendor with parts.

    if you just want some quick, obvious upgrades, do a k&n, CAI, 62-64mm TB, ported upper/lower intake, stage_ heads, a cam, 10:1 compression, underdrive pulley, some headers(one of the grand am sites has a link), and a new exhuast system with a hiflow catayltic converter. thats all off the top of my head, id have to look into it closer to be sure

    Put a K&N air system in it. My buddy did this in his 02 Malibu and it really made a difference!!!!!!

    yah ya know..id really like to know what a HO 3.1l is capable of making without any kind of forced induction. like the most power you could wring out of it. that would be pretty interesting...ive searched around the internet, im pretty sure ive seen some 14 sec 1/4 mile times, but i dont know. id like to think that a naturally aspirited OHV 6 could atleast run with the import crowds OHC 4s on the dragstrip..but i dont really know

    They can and do. My buddies 92 Malibu can beat a Honda civic on the 0-60 and the 1/4 mile. As hard as it is to believe, I kid you not.

    3.1 one aint bad at all

    hell my century can dust those stupid 127 and 115 hp civics, and the corollas, and most of the tiny compacts with no power.

    good old torque

    everything you need for 3100 performance. I myself swapped out my old 3100 for a 3400 (very easy swap, plus you gain 20hp just from the bigger displacement) and I have ported and polished upper and lower intakes with a stage 1 cam. If you want more info, pm or email me.

    my car: http://3400swap.com/wbody3.html

    Im not telling you that you have to buy from MMS, but take in mind they have quality products, and does almost 2-3x more detail work on heads and intakes than rsm. Plus MMS has cams, no other company has them readily available for the 3100 besides regrinds.

    Also have a look at http://www.60degreev6.com/ . There's lots of folks modding 3.1s and 3.4s, as well as the 3.8s. Good luck.
