Finally did in my v6. (cracked head)

After putting about 10,xxx miles on it in a years time I cracked the head on the passenger side yesterday doing 6000 rpm burnouts and 360's. I wasn't watching my gauges and the belt had came off leading to a very fast heat up and by the time I noticed I had no power steering I looked at both temp gauges and they were pegged

The ARP head bolts stopped it from blowing the gasket but caused the head to blow. It's only #2 cylinder and was thinking about trying to fix it temperarely with SODIUM SILICATE (Liquid Glass). Has anybody on here used it before, I had friends that have on their cars and drove them for years after they did it. If I can't fix it then I guess the v8 will go in sooner than I thought

Re: Finally did in my v6. (cracked head)

Ok I thought I had a cracked head but it turned out to be the gasket anyway. What I thought was a crack was just gasket material. I cleaned both heads and had them pressure tested at a friends shop and they checked out good, so I'm going to put it back together with fresh gaskets and drive the hell out of it once again. I found a complete gasket set on ebay felpro brand for $45 shipped. So I will have more time to finish buying everything I need for the v8 swap
