I just bought a '95 Eldorado with 83,460 miles on it. It's got the 275hp 4.6L Northstar V8 and it's sitting on 18 inch factory rims(they look factory)There's absolutely nothing wrong with this car, but I just wanted to know if there were any trouble areas or things I should know about maybe for the year or just anything in general. I'm interested in doing some performance upgrades like a chip and maybe a CAI? If it's available for the northstar? I'd also like to know what this car governs out at in MPH. I know it's capable of pulling 0-60 in 7.5 seconds but what does it do in the long run? Thanks in advance for any replies.

Unfortunately, there is not a chip available for the Northstar. It's a fairly well built engine, but headgaskets are a problem area. Keep an eye out for a small oil leak too, that is a common occurance.

Actually there is a chip for obd 1 smog law northstars which are years 93-95 and it is made by superchip and good for 18hp and 25TQ at about $200 it can be found at www.superchips.com also I brought my intake for mine off of ebay for $50 new with chome elbo. And you can find a set of muffler almost anywhere.

Many times on the web, no news is good news! You bought yourself an excellent ride that could be as little as a third to a half through its life expectancy. Learn how to check your codes, make sure you keep any rust under control (a prob here in the salted Northeast), and change the oil every 3k. Come to this site with specific probs as they arise and you should get answers. Have fun!

My '94 Eldo governs out at 113 mph and it lets you know that it didn't run out of power.... This is the 4th Eldo I've had in 21 years and I think it's the best so far. My last one was an '88 and it was very under powered. I can't wait 'til the next generation Northstar.

Has anyone got and used this chip? How is it?
