    No. 1994 was an OBD-1 powertrain controls engine, 1996 was the changeover to OBD-II.

    Look at the engine interchangeability thread in the stickys in Engines, Northstar.

    Will this motor fit my el dorado

    Will the cylinder head off of a 1994 Cadillac STS fit or will be interchangeable with a 1994 Cadillac Eldorado

    Yes. The intake cam will be different if its out of a base model though.

    What happened to the original head.

    Please let me know if I can swap the following motor with mine which has bent valves:

    1996 Cadillac Seville vin: 1g6kd52y2tu280498. 03/96

    For my 1994 Cadillac El Dorado vin: 1g6el12y7ru620066. 04/94


    No. 1994 was an OBD-1 powertrain controls engine, 1996 was the changeover to OBD-II.

    Look at the engine interchangeability thread in the stickys in Engines, Northstar.

    I was wondering would a 1992 deville motor be used in my 94 else dorado. I appreciate the help


    Go down to the Engines, Northstar forum and study the interchangeability sticky post there. You might find the answer. In the meantime, a member or two with early 90's experience may chime in.
