I can find shops around here to do it for $1500 all day. One guy near me does it for $650. And he IS a Scooby specialist. He flips them and repairs them. I think you've given that dealer enough...

If you have no overheating, change the rad cap and see how it goes. You may want to change the t-stat. That also NEEDS to be an OEM part. I don't buy a lot of parts from the dealer, but those are...

No, that one won't work. Unless you want to open up a wiring can of worms, you need a non-avcs SOHC motor. The only other thing that you should consider is if you have an EGR valve. If you don't,...

Nothing. Just use your old tophats and they'll work fine. It will also allow you to run a larger tire in the rear shall you ever want to.

If you mill the heads you should adjust valves for sure. I used Felpro gaskets and had no problems at all. They were very good quality. Six star or Cometic are probably the best. I have no idea...

My god that looks like fun. I don't think I'd ever have the testicular fortitude to drive that fast on dirt with trees that close to me. They hurt when you run into them.

Did you use an OEM t-stat? They are significantly bigger. I don't buy too many things OEM, but that is one part I do. Otherwise, might it be in backwards? Just to rule it out, run the car without...

Those look like pressure washer marks combined with an inappropriate soap. They owe you a grill. It's a cheap enough part that they shouldn't fight too much.
