my head gasket blew out on me not even 10,000km after i rebuilt the motor NOT HAPPY stoopid ACL crap!!

so i used a Toyota head gasket and ARP head studs:










and here is a pic of the modification you have to do to the dizzy because it interferes with stud (its a bit blurry sorry)

basically you have to grind away the end of the dizzy shaft on a bench grinder because it is a very strong metal:

u used toyota gasket。。。 Oh Very good idea。

Did u use the standard or TRD gasket ??

For my smallport i noticed a TRD 0.5mm gasket made a noticabal difference ~~ Like from idle to redline it felt better。。

Ur car is amazingly clean by the way :)

yeah i used a ACL when i rebuilt the motor and not even 10,000kms done and it leaked oil under the dizzy area..i thought it was the dizzy but i rebuilt it when i did the motor..i only used a standard Toyota head gasket..i would've liked to have used a TRD one but i already had the Toyota one.i was going to use a Cometic MLS but was skeptical as i have already skimmed the head and block..it runs way better now..thanks for the comments :)

i always wanted to take the door protector strips to give the car a much smoother look so i bit the the bullet.yesterday was pretty much just getting the black adhesive strip off and to day i removed the glue.







glue removal..i tried Acetone, Wax and Grease remover and Methylated spirits.out of the 3 the Metho was the best to remove the glue.what it looked like after (still need to cut and polish) :
