The parts and labor to do the head gaskets on the northstar engine is around 2,500.00 dollars.The problem with the northstar is the head bolts usually pull the threads from the engine block.So the head gaskets can't just be replaced.The threads in the block will also need to be repaired with TIMESERTS thread repair kit to strengthen the block.The adds about 6.0 labor to the job.If the head gaskets are replaced without installing TIMESERTS the repair won't last.
