    definitely a head gasket mate, you could take a chance with it, get the gasket replaced maybe the head machined and whack it back together. never know your luck?

    For my 18th I hired a boat with a BBQ on the back, just went cruising with my mates and a heap of beers, pulled over at some stage had a BBQ and a swim then came back. Wasn't anything flash but I'll always remember it as a great day with my mates

    Creation; because that's what I was brought up to believe. I'm not big into it, but there's something out there. IMO.

  17. Townsville Members

    There's nothing major that sticks out mate, I've done the Brisbane to Townsville trip a few times now, I've always stayed at mackay motor inn overnight, I think it was like 140 for the night but by the time you get there you hardly feel like worrying about $50 for a room haha

  20. CA head gasket?

    hey everyone, basically im looking at purchasing an s13, the guy selling it tells me its not running at the moment as it needs a new head gasket but obviously i cant believe that. what i want to know is; is there a way to tell if the head is cracked? would i be better off buying a new head and just replacing the current one with a 2nd hand one or should i take the head off and just get it cleaned up and machined? how much should i be looking at ($$$) for that? obviously theres articles about how to get the head off etc, but i couldnt find anything giving me a definite answer on any of this... cheers

  22. Auto --> Manual conversion?

    Use the search mate this has been covered at least 14 billion times. Depending on wether or not you supply parts your looking at around 1500. A CA gearbox is around 300-500 depending on condition. There's a writeup in the technical forum regarding manual conversions, give it a go yourself a save some money
