03 with a blown head gasket

Ell looks like the deal I was makeing to get an 01 gt isn't gonna happen. I found another 03 gt body and interior in great shape. The motor has 130000 miles and a blown head gasket. He said he put some stuff to seal it and it worked for awhile but started running hot again. I can get the car for a good price and was gonna try and fix the gaskets before I change the motor out. What are things I should look for? Any other problems associated with this to look at?

Check for warped heads, that's all I can think of right now.

One other thing is what would be the best way to flush out the stop leak stuff? And should I do both heads or just do a compression test and fix the bad side?

One other thing, on the 2 valve motors can you change the head gasket with the motor in place? I read you have to pull the cobra motors.
