What do stock 3400's run?

Just a little curious, to what a stock 3400 retta runs in the 1/4 mile at a reasonably low elevation.

Was down at mission watching some drag racing and theres a guy with a 3400 grand am with a cone filter and drag radials and the car runs consistent 15.6 times at about 86mph, he bracket races. Is that about what they run stock? His car is an automatic.

i have seen stock ones at sea level run from about a 15.7 to a 16.1... stock stock i think is about the 16.1.. minot mods will be the 15.7's... but i could be wrong... :p

so 15.6 with just a cone filter on the stock intake is good then. He had drag radials so that would help his time also i guess

Depends what it's in.

GA's can be a little heavy and have a crappy trans FDR.

In a Cavy, it is not unusual to see 3400 5-speed into the 14's and auto's damn close.

Buddy Tim has gone 15.13 and his 3400 is bone stock, on a good auto.

grand ams are a few hundred pounds heavier, im not sure if he has any tunes or trans work, i doubt it since he doesnt even have a proper intake for it.

My neighbor has a 93 cavalier z24 with the 3.1 in it, hes going to be doing a 3400 swap on it soon, they weigh quite simular to a beretta so i was curious how it would do stock, trying to convince him to take it to the track when he puts it in.

A *good* n-body driver should be able to get their car to a low 15.  With a 5-speed ya should be in 14s.
