Not really a blown engine if all it was is a HG. Blown usually means catastrophic engine failure, IE) spun bearing, bent rod, cracked piston, etc.

Sorry to hear though.

Not the bullet proof 3.Slow!!! How did you manage that? Lol it's just a head gasket. It is a b*tch to fix if you do it or you can pay a shop a bazillion dollars.

I know right, I was worried that driving with a head gasket would mess up my engine so I took it out hahaha.

Lol I guess I never thought about how I worded that... I meant if the head gasket is blown it's not a huge deal unless you driving around with the head gasket leaking. Lose or burn coolant will seriously eff the block
