The 4.9 is actually more reliable unless you put head studs in the north star

I stand corrected. I thought the 4.9 was the N*.

FYI: The car did not come with 2 Northstar 4.6L engines but came with 2 - 4.9L Cadillac engines.  Not a biggie.  No harm, no foul.  I believe that the 4.9 was an all cast iron engine with the exception of the timing cover.  The N* was mostly aluminum.  Which engine is heavier?  ?  N* weighs in at 470# w/accessories.  They are both heavy so don't drop one on your toe!
