Default gm 3400. is there any hope?

So my neighbor has a 2003 monte carol 3.4 liter and is asking if or what he can do to it. Looks like hes got the most base model available. So does anyone know? can they be super/turbo charged? can it handle and boost? i've peaked and seen virtually no after market mods for it... I'd jsut like to have an answere for him so he can just enjoy it for what it is.

Thanks

I think some company might have an aftermarket cam and or rocker package. It should be able to be tuned with a DHP powertuner.

I know there is a GM supercharger kit that fits 3400 Grand Ams, but it is expensive and rare.

Nah, I think the slowest one I saw run was low 14s. Low 13s was the fastest. This was years ago though before cams were coming out.

I like the Monte's a lot inside, but if his is a base model it's better to go all out on a 3800 build since the car is probably a flyweight. I wouldn't try and make it "nice" though being a base model.

my dad has a z34 and my bro said that some guy on here had a turbo or was selling turbo kits for Montes. I think that would be pretty sick. I think it would be the same

Its a pile of scrap. If he wants to make it go "fast" save up for an l67 swap. That motor will make more power with some rockers and the easy peasy bolt on shit than if you put a turbo or sc on the 3400.

Dad's is a 3800. The 3400 is a different engine all together. It's a successor to the turd engine that I had in my 96 Grand Prix coupe.

I'm pretty sure there's a guy on here with a turbo 3400, though. Black GAGT coupe, IIRC.
