    The orignal motor had 149k and the original gaskets just no oil pressure. The replacement {used} 1991 motor had 78k when the head gaskets started leaking water outside the block. Never overheated and no water in the oil it just looses a quart of coolant every few months. Still driveable and dependable I just dont like leaks of any kind.

    Just shy of 200,000. I thought that was pretty good. Then I added some goodies and blew them 5,000 later. That was pretty bad. oops

    wich side

    I just blew mine at 153000. funny part was when doing the compression test to see wich side blew, they all passed with over 150 psi. I was expecting to see a little drop at least. pulled both sides and it was passenger side cylinder 2 and really close on 3 as well. oh well while iam in there might as well change some more parts

    Holding My Breath

    I have an '89 5spd with 89,600 miles on it. I'm crossing my fingers that it holds up for a while. Any suggestions to make it last?
