Subject: Blown Head Gasket question


HI, I recently found out where my Coolant was going in my 9000 Turbo. Unfortunately, it's been seeping into a very bad spot. Today, as I kicked in the turbo to pass someone, a puff of smoke came out of the tailpipe, and the car wouldn't go very fast at all. I am assuming that I have either a blown head gasket or a cracked head. Assuming that the situation is just a blown gasket, does anyone know what repairs should run for the whole gamut (sending head for pressure testing, parts, labor, etc.) for putting in a new gasket?? My favored mechanic says last time he did it, it ran $800, but another guy says he can do the whole thing for about $550. If it is just the head gasket, I will get it fixed. Thanks for any input in the matter. Aaron still a proud owner of an '87 9000T
