So the head was well and truely shot, gasket failure and severely pitted head. So on went the 2.0 (1.8) ltr head I've had sitting around...it deffo not running 100% but already I can feel a bit more urgency from the engine and sounds very different too. I guess I need a remap to get it running spot on so can anyone offer garages in Hampshire (southampton) who can do the work.....oh bottom end was fine, no damage which was a result...

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.
