    Boston and Northstar Performance

    after being stuck in Boston, I found these guys to repair my Northstar with Jake's stud kit; www.nemesismustang.com. These guys are very reasonably priced and after watching them at work they know exactly what they are doing especially around the Northstar.

    The engine is out presently and Jake's Northstar stud kit is going in tonight. At least half the bolts were partially stripped and had aluminum on them. I want to express my gratitude to Jake and Charity at Northstar Performance (www.northstarperformance.com) for the help, great information and the wonderfully engineered stud kit.

    I will follow up with an endurance test post on the work once the car is back on the road.

    Hope this can help other Northstar owners get their Cadi's with blown head gaskets and stripped head bolts on the road!

    Sounds like a marketing piece but I would not post this if I truly did not mean it.

    On a side note, since the engine is out, new alternator, starter, O2 sensors, water pump and crank position sensors are going in! I would highly recommend this. The additional cost will be offset long term I believe.

    So what WAS the price for the labor? You didn't have to go TOO much further north to have Jake do it himself for around 1500 bucks or so, so I'm assuming the labor cost was competitive with that considering the parts you had to purchase?

    Yup its going to be around $1500. So it all works out and can be done right in New England.
