well i've turboed my el falcon and blew the head gasket.and then i put a 1.3mm mls head gasket in.its al running but when i went to drive it to my tuner it started over heating so i got it home and there was massive amounts of pressure in the cooling system,what pissing out of the overflow.now i got the head machined, but i cleaned the block with a wire brush and didnt use and copper gasket as it says not to on the head gasket.is the problem with the headgasket leaking exhaust gases into the cooling system.
