i figures that since just about all you see if people asking questions about thier Northstar engine when its in trouble, i would just say mines fine.

it has 56.5k miles on it. bought it at 47.7k miles. changed oil to royal purple with a mobil1 filter. using a nice wix paper element. it gets 19-20 in town and its finally getting 26-28 hwy. i love my car, "Two Tons o' Fun"!

i run the hell out of it too. i make excuses to nail the gas pedal. >=)

My '94 Northstar still has LOTs of giddyup & go! I've got a '76 Vette with a very pepped up engine & transmission ... but I gotta tell ya that from 65 MHP to 100+ that Cadillac will keep right up with the old Stingray. And this is a ride with 179,500 miles on it!

From 0 to 100 though, my bet's going to be on the Stingray .... :yup:
