Very sorry for the late reply guys. I haven't had the chance to be on in a little while (been sick)
Ok. The mod I got done didn't cost me anything and I didn't ask for them to do it. the guy I got to do my head gasket Had a hole drilled into the head (at the back) to allow a hose to be put in to let fluid escape from the back. The hose runs from the head to the tank where you put the coolant in. (At least I'm pretty sure, haven't payed much attention to it really) apparantly the water circulation around this area is bad on these engines and is what causes the head bolts to sheer and brake.
I've also heard from other people that most new heads come with this mod already done as standard. Whether this is true I have no idea
As soon as I can get my hands on my old mans camera I will post pics as they will explain what has been done much better than what I can. Sorry for the late reply.
