It sounds a little bit like a tractor. Are all the exhaust ports holding?

Quite impressive undertaking over these last couple months. Looks like you really dodged a bullet. Hope from here on out you have good luck with it. I would guess you would file this under: Well I won't do that again.

no i think i have a leak. not sure if it the grease/anti-seize burning off or a leak. Waiting for it to cool down and will take another look. The noise normalized when it warmed up.

Just got back from an hour long roughly 50 mile test drive. No CEL's, smoking. rough idle or anything of the sort. There was a little smoke coming from exhaust manifold that I thought was a leak but its not there anymore so I think it was grease.

Glad to see you saw this through! However, you won’t know right away of any internal damage. We have to wait and see, you might be really lucky. I agree on oil additives probably doing damage.

WOW. that's some serious work you got thru, do you mind me asking if are you a weekend mechanic or a professional mechanic or just do this for hobby?

No I am no mechanic professional or otherwise. I would not even call myself a hobbyist - i have worked on cars from time to time but not for fun. It just so happened that I had a blown head gasket and needed to do something about it. The price quotes I got from the dealers and an indie were prohibitively high so that was a no go. After doing some research of what was involved and watching a few YouTube videos - I decided to give it a go.

Ok, you got a figurative fabricated white coat from me for showing some bolls.

I think I can conclusively say that the head gasket issue is solved after driving the car for 2 days about 300 miles since repair.

Before repair:

After reading your own admissions and the rest - I've been lurking/rooting for you to get it working. Happy you didn't waste your efforts. Nice work.
