Hi,

I'd want to know, how many hours of labor (more or less), are necessary, in order to change a RB26's head gasket.

Thanks in advance for your reply

Yes, it took about that time in total to remove the head and re-fit the new HKS gasket (this does not allow for time to say have the head checked for straightness and other jobs I did at the same time).

I guess the disconnection of the turbos took about 2 hours. So for the complete job, inluding time to re-fit the turbos, would be 8 hours.

I really think that it looks a daunting job, but its only nuts and bolts. The trick is not to get scared!
