I just want to confirm that all Northstar engine bays have the same intake track, so I could buy a setup for any northstar caddy and it would fit. Maybe not all the connections in such but it would fit in the spot. Also are ther any differences between a 95 ETC and a 95 STS's engine bay, like does the STS also not have a MAF.

Apparently, the pre 96 models (OBDII) did not have MAFSs..... This comes in very handy when you try and clean the TB out....

But all the intakes should be the same......

There were known problems with RSM Racing trying to supply everyone with the same intake. The OBD II cars allow for a 45 degree bend in the intake while the earlier ones require a 90 degree bend. Take pictures from both and you'll notice on the right side of the OBD I you have a box that has the fuses which gets in the way. On the OBD II I think it's some kind of reservior. I forgot exactly what it is and am too lazy to look it up right now. I have an OBD I.

I'm pretty sure they are the same.
