The head gasket finally shat itself, not bad concidering its the original, 1988 EA MPFI. So, I needed to fix it quick. So I put my U-beaut head on, just swapped over the rocker gear and cam (std).
It runs great. I had to adjust the fuel down to minus 15% at idle up to 1500 rpm, ran too rich. It is a lot smoother now, and more power the whole way through.
So now I'll have to do another head for my new engine.
BTW, the car is using less fuel now.

I have a Moristech piggy back unit, uses a laptop to play with it. Can adjust the fuel and ignition maps, separately & independantly.
