Nice! Although for most average people a head gasket is probably 'blown' in their minds. I'm not sure I would know if it was just a head gasket if mine went out on me, as I've never had that happen to me on a car thus far. But, if it was my 3rd gen and the engine went to crap, I'd be opening it up and learning how to work on it in a hurry. Rust must kill my car, not some silly engine problem. I suppose if it get hit hard enough, that would be a reason to let it die too, but it's gotten its love bump from the wife driving it, so hopefully that's it in that department.

Congrats on the find! Now I gotta start looking for more 'dead' ludes on craigslist. Maybe I can find one that just needs a head gasket.

b20a5 si and yep 4ws. the engine was actually just replaced 10k miles ago. he gave me the papers from where he got it done.
he thought he cracked two pistons, but the head gasket was just blown in between the two of them... lol who woulda thought. dude put alot of money into the car, he was just tired of messin with it. brand new seats. just dirty. its even got a clean title :) it was one of my uncles friends.

and yeah its already running, with a few minor problems. gotta redo the timing and adjust the rocker arms. and the front right strut is bad. but other than that, the car runs like a dream.
just gotta get a job so i can put some money into it >.>
