have a 1997 STS, 109k, Blown head gasket...local Caddy dealer is quoting close to $4k for repairs, not taking into account any other probs found along the way.
Does anyone know of a cheap place to get a new Northstar, or any cheap rebuilt or used sources?
thanks in advance!

I suggest that u go and buy a rebuilt since ur expecting to pay that much.
If I was in your situation I would go to a junk yard and pull an engine and rebuilt it. I gurantee you will save at least a thousand.
Used motors are going to run around two grand to buy, labor at everywhere I found was another two thousand...four grand for a used motor is about right if you're going to have it installed. I found a 37,000 mile motor that I'm putting in myself, it'll be here tomorrow and the other one is out of the car...hopefully I'll be driving again in a week or so!? Good luck!
