ok well im doing the head gasket on the gt today. heres my progress so far.
one head left to take off and then clean up everything. the gasket didnt look bad on the drivers side
which is the one that i think was bad. akthough as soon as i started pulleing head bolts coolant was leaking
from the head. one valve looked differant from the rest, but nothing major like i expected
so i dont know.looking at the flat tops and the heads it doesnt look bad for 227k, all my valves are pretty damn clean! i also dont see why regular heads wont work on this motor. and the ports are fairly large too, it seems like this head would flow good but i geuss they dont.
well heres pics

thanks a ton! i might be able to get the new intake in along with the spacer.... sweet it will be close though. the new intake with spacer is a total of 1 foot 1/8 inch with gaskets lol it'll be damn close
cool what intake is it? remember if its too close when u floor it the motor moves and will push on the hood. u might have to get cowl hood
yea i know, luckythirteen13 had this issue with his typhoon which is what i have. when he floored it it tapped the hood. what im going to do for a temp cowl is remove the skin off the stock hood keep the bracing(modified of course to make room) then fiberglass a new skin on the bracing. i already started fiberglassing a new decklid. so far so good!
