          You will need to create the mounting points that the Caddilac uses on your frame. Should not be a big deal. You will also need to create the upper strut mounts. More of a challenge. No disrespect intended, but if you have to ask, I question if you're up to the task.

            My Diablo in process. 1999 Cadillac 4.6L Northstar. Computer was reprogramed by Wester's Garage as 3 computers are required (fuel, Ignition, & Trans). I still have to wire it up this summer. Engines after 1999 will have VVT (Variable Valve Timing) and I don't know a lot about working with them.
