Does any one know where i can get a racing chip for my 3.1 rs it is so hard to find performance parts for it. :???:

don't bother...even if there is a chip, the performance gain is so minimal it's not worth the money or the trouble...you are better off saving up and putting in an LT-1, or TP1 motor, they are relatively inexpensive and make plenty of power.

My bro had the identical car,it was a 91,he put a Hypertech stage 2 chip in it,it didnt do anything at all to it, powerwise,it stil ran 17.0 no matter what.His was an auto.If ,.He put 3.42 gears in his ,it had 3.23's,that helped a little,you wil never get thep ower you want though,better off selling it,and buying a 350 TPI car,ir better yet an LT1,used if you can afford it.

Something you may want to do if you "need" to do something to it, is to put some type of exhaust on it, I wouldnt get anything that has too many baffles in the muffler, then it sounds crappy....check out f-body.org, 3rdgen.org or ls1.com

come on over to http://www.thirdgen.org I don't have a V6, but there's plenty of guys on there... even a complete V6 web board... there are a few people running 15's without that much effort and a couple I've seen in the 13's... with the 3.1

BTW nice lookin' F-body '92 was the best for the [3rd gen] camaro IMO

the only thing there really is to do to the 3.1 v6 is internals.. go cam it out, get new pistons and pushrods, port/polish the heads,intake, and TB. thats about it..unless you want forced induction or NOS.
