    Re: Huge thanks to Joe at Midwest Cadillac Repair

    Just a follow up on my headgasket job @Midwest #201 took my 640 mile round trip to Detroit last weekend. Here are the facts 80/85+ mph all day ! 206 to 212 coolant temp . 26.1 MPG At 85 degrees out side temp. Cant get better than that ! Additionally if it wasnt for the magnaflow super turbos I would even know the car was running . Tx. Joe

    Re: Huge thanks to Joe at Midwest Cadillac Repair

    My 2001 STS is on its way up to Joe in Palatine tomorrow morning to get the fix in. She overheated on me coming back from Chicago 3 months ago; flushed her out and replaced the coolant and it went away. It's starting to warm up down here in the STL metro area, she overheated on me again 2 days ago and I haven't driven her since. Got on the phone to Joe to work out some details and he told me to bring her on up - my baby will be there sometime tomorrow evening on the back of a trailer. I knew I was taking a risk buying a N* equipped Caddy, but I knew that going in; I was hooked the first time I drove it..

    Now, if I could get my other Seville up and running again..

    Thank again to all you Caddy aficianados here in the forums.

    =)

    Joe will take care of your baby. Hes a great guy and an awesome mechanic. Are you studding or NormSerting her innards?

    I talked to Joe yesterday; the car made it to him just fine, he said. He also said that in the 250 Cadillacs that he's done so far, he can think of maybe ten of those getting studs rather than the inserts; there is a 250 dollar price difference but he said they essentially do the same thing. A matter of preference, he remarked. I'll go with the inserts.

    250 cars...wow, the word must be really getting out!

    He has had people come from as far as Colorado and one of the Dakotas if I remember correctly.

    Yeah, I was the Dakotas guy. I had my '97 ETC trailered to MCR in August. Studded it w/NSP studs. When it was done, Joe picked me up at O'Hare and I drove it home. Good guy. Treated me right. Fixed a few other items while it was there.
    That was about 7,000 miles ago. No problems. In fact, just drove across the state and back this weekend (700 miles).
    I will likely take my STS to him as well at some point.
    As a side note............Anybody got studs from Jake lately? I called NSP and they said they were not having any production isssues anymore.
