What gaskets do I need?

When I plan on going home for Easter, me and one of my mechanic buddies will be replacing my head gasket that is leaking radiator fluid out (not into the oil thankfully!) My question is what are all the gaskets I need to do this? I know I need both head gaskets, header gaskets and bolts, intake gasket...what else?


Oh and do you think this is something that can be done in a day? My buddy said it could.

i think you have it pretty much covered. make sure you flush the radiator system to and change the oil out. yes it can be done in one day if you know what your doing and have everything you need.

you will also need valve cover gaskets, upper AND lower intake gaskets.....

I wouldnt suggest rushing it in a day.....you need to have both cylinders pressure tested and have them tested to make sure they are not warped or that the mating surface isn't out of wack.....if any of those are, you will be pulling them back off very soon
