Well... i got to find out first hand, and you get to watch and enjoy!
if your about to do this job your self please watch and you will have a
good understanding of how to do it. or at least whats involved.
This was a weekend project and i thought i would document it for fun... and
to help others.
This would have cost me between $1200-$1600 as a local shop. depending on
where i took it.
i did this job my self for just over $200 including the fallowing:
head gasket kit
new head bolts
new coolant reservoir
new spark plugs
RTV Black sealant
Quick set epoxy
and some coolant system flush.
for me it was better than buying a new car...

Caliber SRT walks 350z
Ran into a guy who remembered getting spanked by my CSRT. Turns out his
buddy in the passenger seat had his phone cam rolling. He thought his 350z
was fast until I completely walked on him. I remember wondering if he was
actaully on it. I mean he jumped so I went but I flew by him so hard I
wasn't really sure. He was a good sport and gave the video so I bought him
a drink and gave him a few free passes on my Dyno at FWDPerformance.com

Blown Head Gasket Saab 9-3?! Start Up With LOTS of Smoke
Well a lot of you probably remember the 2000 Saab 9-3 Hatch back that we
had at the dealership a couple of months ago. Well something happened to
the engine to where it just billows an un natural amount of pure white
smoke! They brought it back so we can get it fixed for them. In this
video I try and assess what's going on and see if you all have any
suggestions on what it could be before we send it to the shop. Dad also
pulls it around and sees for him self. we're thinking it's a head gasket
and maybe a motor mount or a tranny mount. Post below what you guys think
it is and I'll let you all know when we find out. You will see what I mean
and how bad this thing is haha, enjoy!
