Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.I will do my best to assist you.
please explain your question
I need to know if there is any way possible to install a 02 northstar 4.6L engine in a 1999?
give me just a moment
what car are you putting it in?
what kind of cadilac is the engine going in?
1999 cadillac STS 4.6I. the camshaft and Crankshaft sensors are different that I know
im not showing these engines as interchachable
but you should be able to put your crank and cam sensors in the 02 and it should work..
the engines are basically the same
The 99 is two wire sensor and the 02 is 3 wire, can I make the 3 wire sensor work if I cut one wire? Or I have to change the sensors from the year type I will used?
change the sensors,,
\use the ones from your 99

I will try to make them fit but the hole where they go in is bigger plus the cam sprocket is different. I will need to see if the crackshaft is different as well.
if that is the case..
i wouldnt think you can get it to work correctly
you may want to try to find the correct engine
again,,i am showing it not to interchange
