: 4.1 Liter

It finally happened. The 4.1 liter engine in my 84 deville is dying sounds like a it is going to throw a rod :mad: but it does have 180k on it. Looking for some input on my best bet for a replacement, what has the best fit, should I keep the tranny, seems to still be strong. The sad part is I will miss driving it till I can fix it :crying:

If you want some power you can double the displacement and go with a 500.

wasnt the 4.1 L the basis for the design of the northstar??? if so why does the 4.1 suck so bad compared to the good ole northstars? I mean in 20 years they have nearly trippled the performance of the motor and only gone up .8 liters and then back down to the 4.6 it is today.
