  1. This example of Cadillac’s all-aluminum, 4.6-liter Northstar V8 was donated by a front-wheel-drive 1994 Seville STS and fits well in the Golf’s engine bay. At 1.5 inches shorter and just 60 pounds heavier than a VR6, the Northstar isn’t such a far-fetched swap.

    Just a thought but wouldn’t a LS4 from a FWD GM be a more compact engine than the Northstar? Or even a 3.8 Supercharged V6? I have a 1999 VW Cabrio and you’ve definitely sparked my interest/imagination. Thanks.

    Thanks for the dimension information. Do you have any idea on how the LS4 & Northstar compare in weight? Thanks.
