My advice would be to put in an AU engine, not hard to do.

i did a head gasket not to long ago. If i had to do it again i would get a low k AU motor. u can get sub 100k engine's no acces. for around the 400 mark if u shop around. Heaps of info on this site for the conversion too.

correct me if i am wrong but they shouldn't need a head gasket done as they use the AU steel one from factory.

au motor is internally balanced, which means less vibration and can take more power.
