GM Goodwrench 4.4L/469HP LC3 Northstar Engine
Want the ultimate in high-tech GM Performance technology with the refinement that only Cadillac can bring you? Well, you're looking at your next project engine in the LC3 4.4L supercharged, 32-valve, DOHC V8! The amazingly efficient (1.65 HP/cubic inch) LC3 takes the small block V8 to the extreme in performance, reliability, and quality. The keys to all of this are the roots-style supercharger, GM's variable valve timing, and 4.4 liters of gentlemanly power.
Simply put, Cadillac's new supercharged Northstar 4.4L V8 is a showcase of advanced engine technology. Cadillac engineers held nothing back when building the exciting new LC3 supercharged V8. They wanted an excellent idle, smooth throttle response, and exhilarating top end power. To do this, they developed a new intercooled roots-style supercharger to work with the Northstar's infinitely variable valve timing to deliver high performance and exceptional refinement. Horsepower pops to 469 at 6400 RPM, and the extremely broad torque band peaks at 439 ft/lbs TQ at 3900 RPM with 90% of that available from 2200-6000 RPM.SPECIFICATIONS
