My 1998 Northstar V8 Cadillac Deville with straight pipes
This is my 1998 Cadillac Deville with the Northstar V8. The original mufflers started to leak so I had a shop cut them off and welded two pipes and some stainless steel Exhaust tips from the Y-splitter. Everything else is still original including the catalytic converter, this is just without mufflers. To me the sound is really nice, it is pretty loud but not loud enough to be annoying while cruising on the highway. I should have done this a long time ago!
Zero to 60 Run--4.6 Cadillac Northstar V8 vs. 4.9 OHV V8
Zero to 60 comparison between my new 2001 Cadillac Seville SLS with a 4.6 Northstar V8 and the 1991 Cadillac Sedan de Ville with a 4.9 that I've owned since 2005. The Northstar in the Seville is faster, especially at the top end, but the good old 4.9 in the DeVille holds its own--especially for an 18-year-old car with 257,000 miles on it.
Judging from the time codes in the video, the Seville did it in 7 second flat; the DeVille is just over 9 seconds.
Interestingly, both cars shift from 1st to 2nd at 45 MPH, and both hold 2nd gear all the way up to ~80 MPH. Without a tach in the DeVille, I have no idea how high it was revving, but it probably went close to redline.
The noise you hear besides the engine revving in the Seville is raindrops on the windshield. I had the camera on a tripod held down between my legs in the Seville; in the DeVille, it's just handheld, so it's shakier.
Both runs done on Stapleton Rd. just south of Monmouth/Independence, Oregon
