Default RS-T problems...

As some of you might have read in my other posts, i put a 2002 EJ25 working block back in the car with the decked heads (were overheated 4 thousands and were decked 5 thousands) of my overheated engine. Coolant still found its way in the engine. I did NOT see any traces of coolant in the cylinder walls/chambers as I took the head off of the engine. I could not, for the life of me, figure out what is wrong. The head, or the gasket. Here are the pics. You call what's wrong.

This is the << LEFT >> head, not as I stated in the picture.


This is the << RIGHT >> head.


Thanks for your help guys. By the way, i had the engine off the car in 20 min. without power tools.

Did they check the head for crack?

Possibly could have cracked something. That or the thing is just warped and not going to seal correctly.

So, here's my 2 situations:

a. Buy new heads (~$800?)
b. Buy an EJ25 engine with 11k miles on it, but it was head-on crashed and has broken a timing cover. I will have to go and look at it if it is safe to put on the car. They tested the compression and everything is good. $800

Which of the two?

I found a set of heads for $190 each (L & R), so figure what, 500 with shipping? What you guys think?

I take it then there are no visible cracks even very small ones? I only paid $600 for my entire spare motor so $190 a side still sounds expensive.

the heads were decked .005" and pressure tested, i was skeptical because of a heat mark in the head, well that heat mark seems to have expanded when the heads were torqued down and then heated up. unfortunately this is just something that can go wrong when you severely overheat a block.
