Friends,

I'm looking at 209's from 2001 and later with the Northstar and MCX. I've found an immaculate 2001 with Northstar and can save some money over a later model with the MCX. Okay, so I've read all the posts about the Northstar, oil consumption, piston honing, etc, and am more perplexed than when I started.

So, bottom line, is the MCX a substantially more reliable engine than the Northstar?

And what does the TR preface to Northstar represent, as in TR Northstar 5.7 330 hp.

I'm not concerned about the difference in power. Reliability is my concern.

Thank you.

Scott
