Re: motor swap question
No. Many different parts, mounting, electrical, electronic, ignition differences.
2000 - 2003 VIN Y will swap. (VIN Y - the 8th character in your VIN).
ANY used Northstar - especially "cheap" - is worth a boat anchor and that's IT. Do a top overhaul and stud job on your present engine and it will run forever. Many, many articles on this and engine compatibility in the sticky posts at the top of the Engines, Northstar Performance threads page and in Discussions, Cadillac Tech Tips.
