What engine will work in a 97 Cadillac devile other than the northstar engine?

Cars & Vehicles

It's really a matter of how much work you're willing to put into it. If it can fit in the engine compartment, it can be made to work one way or another. However, using anything other than the OEM engine is going to be a LOT of additional work.. you'll probably need to replace the ECM, find either a workable adapter plate for the transmission or a new transmission (which might require a whole new driveshaft), reflashing or replacement of the ECM, etc.
