a couple of years ago i blew the head gasket and had the engine thrown back together with a new head about 8 months later it went again, so i filled the water system with leak stopper which reduced the water loss. I drove it for another 12-18 months just topping up the water and no stat, i event raced the car at Santa pod with the blown HG 12.0 if you are wondering (pb 11..
After being disappointed with the previous engine rebuild it was clear to me that this time get it done and get it done right. i have used Impulse Developments in Stockpot for several other jobs in the past and i am aware of his build on some race engines. with shopping list containing: forged rods, ARP stood kit, a gasket to get it near as poss to standard compression, new piston rings and the head and block skimmed, (i already have forged pistons). a price was agreed saved up and dropped off.
on pull down there was few cracks on the head, with crack finder found many cracks. he gave me a price to repair the head and I decided to go a head with the repair, as i considered buying a second hand head which could cost approx the same as the repair work and there is no guarantees that it it wont come without cracks.
Tl;Dr engine and head fucked here is a build thread.
cracks drilled out
