    4.9 ever used in a hearse?

    I am planning to install a 4.9 in my Fiero GT.... but i am also planning to sell my truck and getting a hearse.... did Cadillac use the 4.9 motor in hearses? I like how they changed looks on some models from 1994 -95 but still had 4.9 but i dunno if those model year hearses had the 4.9?

    Surely in '94-95 they would have just made hearses out of Fleetwoods.....

    That;s what I was going to say. But any FWD one from 1991-1995 should have a 4.9. Just pop the hood and look. 1994 & 1995 will either be that or a northstar and it's not hard to tell those apart.

    Those pictures of the engine, though not distinct,look like a 4.5 on the air

    The round distributor cover is a dead giveaway (no pun intended!) Its an '89 so its for sure a TBI 4.5 but who cares what engine? It's a hearse!!
