Thanks Baz :D

The headgasket is a fairly easy thing to change.

Its all the other engine mods im going to need help with, like making the required bits and pieces needed for the VNT to be fitted, and completely rebuild and reinforce it so that it wont blow up after 2 miles :p

Evicted? Noooo, thats no fair :( . As youre getting close to finishing your project 5 I really hope you get it done before you need to leave the garage.

Looks like i might have to find a rentable garage for this job then, and maybe just rent it for 2-4 weeks atleast.

Its been a long time since my last update. Too long time actually. Holy crap were talking years... :oops:

Ok so today I`ve finally taken taken off the head and tried to find out where the problem that may have caused the failure. The only problem is that there are no signs of damage to the old head gasket  :? However tomorrow Im heading back to the garage to see if the head might be warped and in need of skimming. If thats not the problem then i dont know what the reason for insane amounts of smoke could come from. oh and yes the turbo is still in good condition.

I might even take som pics tomorow of the progress.

As promised here are some pics of the cylinder head, head gasket and bottom end, I cant see any faults in the gasket. Maybe one of you guys might see something I`ve overlooked.

Cylinder head:






Head gasket:










Bottom end:




If any of you can see anything here that might have caused the car to smoke ALOT, please tell me.

I'm not as eagle-eyed as some but can i see some det marks on the old gasket?

Have you checked the liners haven't got any cracks, when i split one that smoked big time. Don't turn the engine over without clamping the liners down first though.
