Default wow what a job..

so about a month ago i blew my head gasket. i changed them my self but this is what happened. i changed the left side casue that was the bad side. put everything back to gether then the right side failed. so pretty much i took aprt and re assembled most of my engine twice and i would recommend if any one has to do that i would pull the motor. the reason i couldnt pull it was becasue i all ready have another engine on my stand hah.
just leting everyone that doesnt know if you do the PI swap or change head gaskets there not kidding when they say to pull the motor because it easier haha

but now that my car is finally running and i just ordered a sport roll cage 6pt and im gutting the interior getting race seat and belt. should be pretty nice and completed in a few weeks.

Doing heads in the car isn't that hard. I took my 2v heads out and replaced them with 4v heads. The 4v heads are huge, and didn't have any trouble with it in the car. I had to put two bolts in the passenger side head before dropping it on the block, and one on the driver side, cause the shock towers got in the way.

If you think there wasn't a lot of room to work, you'd cry trying to do basic maintenance on a Cadillac or some of the GMC's. A mod motor in the car is almost like having it on an engine stand compared to some of GM's bull****.
