Default Stoopid head gasket.......

My car has been down about a week now. When I first got, the freaking intake manifold was cracked and it was replaced, well that caused a blown head gasket. I went to the shop today to check up on my car and my heads are sitting at a machine shop getting checked and resurfaced. What exactly does that mean? What do they do the heads?

Dude that blows you just got that ride! Checked means checking for cracks, resurfacing will basically shave a small amount of material from the mating surface where it bolts to the block - this will ensure that the head is flat and have the proper texture to seal the gasket.

Yeah I know man, I miss my car so much. I didn't get a chance to wash it yet. The heads were sent to the machine shop either yesterday or early today. The mechanic is saying that I will have my car back tommorrow. If I get it back early enough, I'm getting my off road X-pipe installed. I called the performance shop where I bought my mufflers and the X-pipe is only $20 more than the H so I might as well go for the best gains and sound.

Well congrats dude I hope its not costing you too much because you've already dumped alot of money to buy the car - did you talk to the seller of the car yet to see what he had to say about it?
