Hi Folks. EL I6. It has either a cracked head or blown gasket due to warped head (overheated due to coolant loss)

The head that is on it atm is an AU JMM Dev 1. Now, JMM no longer exists, so I am wondering where would be a good place in Melbourne to get the head reco'd/replaced. I know of a place in Queensland that supposedly do a good job, but to send it there seems a bit over the top.

Cheers :D

Im pretty sure with the Dev 1 kits, the head wasn't touched at all. Try CVE Performance in Hallam

Yeah, I think you are right. From what I remember now, that "kit" just had the headers and zorst done.
I'll look at CVE. Thanks for that.

Funny, I'm in QLD and all I can find are robbers and bandits. Do tell me who you think can do a good job (without tipping me upside down and shaking my wallet free).

Check this out:
