Using a dealer or HKS head gasket? Nows the time to port and polish. Too bad its non turbo.

I found a head gasket kit on ebay for 65 bucks i think I am just going to go with that. Im not going to be putting any major HP to this car anyway. What are your guyss opinion on that? Does HKS make a kit? Or just the head gasket?

What does this head gasket kit consist of? If I was doing it Id use a metal HKS HG and use dealer gaskets everywhere else. Anyone can go to crap-zone and buy some POS head, and manifold gaskets and call it a head gasket kit. I'd replace the EGR cooler gasket while the head is off since its the only way possible to replace it. Dont forget the water outlet housing gasket also.

Well now if you are replacing valve stem seals you better measure/adjust the valve clearances.


Not something Id do to a non turbo car (i.e. waste of time, do it on something worth my while), so have fun!
