Blew the head gasket...finally, its a statistic.
I had the pleasure of tracing a water leak on friday to find a whole shit load of dried coolant on the block. mmmm looked like welsch plugs. Take exhaust manifold off car and presto, head gasket blown.
No water in oil, steady loss of water, so due to the fact I have no other car I am still driving it. I hope mum and dad pick up their new car tomorrow, cos im shit scared about breaking head bolts and the like.
Ok, parts for me to do this are gunna cost me about $500 (new head bolts, gaskets, machining of the head, new exhaust valve seats and new brass welsch plugs.) I have been saving up a little for the supra box, but im thinking the box wont do much without a motor to run it.
Ok, now to the point. While the head is off the block, what mods do u guys suggest I do to it? (im not REALLY looking for a cam, unless I find a good one 2nd hand) im talking more about porting and the like. Can I clean up the head without modifying or changing the valves? I might also look at getting the EF intake while the top end is in bits. Bear in mind, Im also getting pacemaker extractors and new cats within the next month or two, so I would love my mods to complement each other.
I think thats all I wanted to ask. Any and every suggestion is welcome.
