Now the good news. When in doubt big fucking hammer time! Pounded the hex bit into the hex bolts and was able to grab just enough to spin the bolts loose. I now have my vg33e heads. Bonus is Doug Thorley headers and cheery bombs but I don't think the headers will work on 2wd, we will have to wait and see.






Blown head gasket between 3 and 5. Jury is still out on using the vg33 block or not.

A quick rinse in the parts washer at work. Bank 2.


Bank 1 getting a bath tonight. A LOT of carbon build up.

Awesome, this is a really cool project. Hopefully your block is fine as well.

What do you use in your parts washer? It took me forever to get that KA head clean using mineral spirits. But I wasn’t using a parts washer.

It's just a really hot soapy water. NY doesn't allow us to use real cleaners. I spent about 30 minutes with it.

Bank 1 after a quick soak. Not seeing any damage from the blown head gasket. Next is stripping these heads bare.

It gets the big shit but to fine tune it I need to soak it in degreaser then send them out for blasting.

I’d try oven cleaner for a faster result. Than maybe get some gasoline and a wire or soft bristle brush to clean a mucky part.

Good ideas. I was using the parts washer at work while on lunch. Got the valve covers cleaner tonight. Little bits each night.
