    Yeah I remember seeing that. I can take measurements on the old engine since I had to reuse the old gasket. I think it was live4redline who was looking for it

    Sorry to hear you had to swap, but glad it went smoothly. Is the old engine toast then?

    Thanks for the write-up. Bit of a bummer the job didn't get to happen on YOUR schedule!

    Rival's car lives on in the forum: I picked up his original Enasaves a couple of weekends ago.

    Imagine what a dealership would have charged.

    It'd be crazy especially since I wouldn't have been able to use my own engine I bought.

    So just to clarify:

    The new engine is operational and working well?

    Yes. It is. Driven to work twice putting around 300 miles so far and nary an issue.

    It was most definitely a headgasket thing. Had combustion gasses in the coolant. Could be a cracked block but thats much less likely. I flog the hell out of the car so most likely i stretched the head bolts pushing it too hard.
