    Looks like its time to change my headgasket, i'm loosing coolant invisibly, misfire at idle when hot and sometimes iffy performance. Are there any specific things to watch out for, I've replaced one on a bluebird turbo a few years ago so I have a vague idea what is involved. Am i best off...

I am in the process of doing so right now, but I cannot lift the head off of the block because the timing chain guides are in...

    I finally managed to get some time to have a look at the Carlsson's headgasket this afternoon. 4 hours later it's off, and the gasket is the failure point. Luckily the head and block are not marked, just the metal gasket ring had split. All the bolts came undone (although one turbo stud came...

    Original headgasket finally gave up the ghost. Coolant spraying out while under boost (~19-21PSI). Please get back to me with recommendations for high performance replacement. Modifications listed at Slaab's Web Page [Just fixen the link - ERP]
