The LS lump in standard tune only needs two gears... first second and overdrive ::)
Was Omega V8 a Northstar? It says on TIS, if someone has it loaded.

The reason it sticks in my mind is I would have thought Northstar would have been too big...
It was an ls1, me thinks MrTB is a little tired.

No way on gods green earth will a North Star fit. MrTB knows this. ::)
I know its too big. But look at TIS (I can't, I've melted one machine with TIS, and corrupted the other ;D). I'm 99% certain it says its a Northstar. And I'm 100% sure with the Northstar's heads, it'd never fit.
Northstar is also front wheel drive. ;)

The confusion might stem from the fact that the current V8 Cadillac lump is a Northstar derivative... in a rwd chassis ::)

It can't possibly be a Northstar, hence it sticks in my mind that TIS said it was...

...unless my marbles have gone, and I read it somewhere else, not TIS. Thing is, if I read it on Internet, I'd assume it was bullshit  :-\

It might have been, I will check at some point as there is also something in my mind saying the same.

Northstar is not nearly as wide as you think as the stroke is not nearly as long as the Gen IV 's(so the deck height is less). Plus exhaust manifolds are very well contained and dont impact on the width.

They were also built as of around 2000 for rear wheel/four wheel drive apllications (water pump moved etc).

However, the control system is pretty advanced with variable valve timing etc so getting on running outside of is targeted vehicle would be a challenge
