Hello everyone,

Just recently I got into a little contest with a new 2012 V6 Mustang in my 2002 Eldorado ETC. I was surprised I had him beat by a good whole car length. My 4.9 L Seville feels stronger around town, but after 80 mph and 3000 rpm the Northstar jst totally takes off. What an underrated engine the Northstar is, its rather a shame how many are putted around 20 under the speed limit. I cant understand why GM discontinued the engine.

.....Now try a V8 Mustang :sneaky:

By today's standards, the Northstar is getting a bit long in the tooth (it was designed in the '80's). On top of that, it unfortunately doesn't have the best reputation. It was simply time for change.
