Specs of the 4.4 Northstar Engine
When offered as an OEM or crate version, the LC3 should still have the factory specs. The official Cadillac documentation lists the build as a 266 CID block. The casing is made from two types of metal. The top section is a sand casted aluminum. The bottom is the die cast section. There are four valves for each of the cylinders in the Northstar V8.
The ratio of compression is 9:0:1. The SFI fuel system is standard on all late model longitudinal blocks. The cut off for fuel during overdrive is 6700 RPMs. The range of power can be 443 hp or 469 depending on when the 4.4-liter was made. The regular VIN D 8th digit version is what is for sale here.
