Multi-part question:

1- How many miles have you driven the car since replacing the head gaskets?

2- At what mileage did your original HG's fail?

3- Stock engine or modified?

4- Bottom end left alone when HG's replaced?

Driving habits:
5- Baby it or Beat on it?
6- Daily driver or Toy?

1- About 500 miles so far.
2- At 119,900, my mufflers developed an anti-freeze leak.
3 - All stock.
4 - Bottom end left alone. Almost no coolant in oil. Went straight to the ER at the first sign of imminent danger. While in surgery, had solid engine mounts, plugs, wires, blah blah and two tensioner pulleys replaced.
5 - Pretty much pampered like a baby it's whole life.

That's the poop on my Super Coupe.
