its still not running 100%... but its reliable now that i got the coolant under control

its not peppy like it should be... there is a major dead spot in the RPM'*.. when it downshifts around the 4-5K range the engine roars.. but it does not squeak the tires off the line at all... i need to look more into that.. plugged cat? new fuel filter?

there is also somewhat of a tick, almost sounds like an injector pulse, yet to be determined... it has no coded stored

Sounds about typical for a DOHC engine. Most northstars are gutless until they get over 3,500 RPM too. They're a totally different breed of engine. They're made to rev high and rev high often.

Good buy, But ditch it and get the cash. You can find some really nice cars for what you can get for that one.

Jim W'* 'rora had less than my 93 off the line, but it made up for it very quickly. That powerband is fun though...

I'd say keep it, although hopefully you never have to change the alt. Judging from the trunk pic, it'* been done recently...

I'm guessing your not going to chalkboard this one.
