:hide: I don't want to start a pissing contest, but above and below all your posts for the last month there are threads about exhausts, wheels, wild sand rail N*'s, air box mods, why CAI's aren't the most cost-effective way to go, mufflers, catalytic convertors, Y-pipes, "butt plugs", PCM tuning, and gosh-knows-what.

Search threads by STS2003, HITMONEY, codewize, other DIY modders, and scrounge around the Deville ^^ forum.

There's enough in here to fill a book. Nothing earth-shattering can be done, mind you, just little stuff to help a bit (except for some intelligent exhaust work.....).

This question is quite a flip flop from your post at the bottom of the page concerning WOT's.........

The northstar is making about 99 percent of its maximum output from the factory. You may pick up a couple horses with a good exhaust, other than that, there's nothing you can do to it.

Of course you could always sell the deville and pick up a 94-96 fleetwood with the corvette lt-1, you'll run out of money before you run out of mods to do to it. Or if you wana go really fast, there's always the xlr-v or cts-v

Um, tbh, I came from crown vics and we were lucky to bbe able to use a lot of mustang preformance parts.


The best way to get preformance outta these northstars is general mantaince and running it hard. A tune from aj is also a good idea, and one member here put a snail on it. That thing ****in moves.
