Machined heads, new head gasket, new water pump, new thermostat, lots of new hoses, new mean green starter.

She runs dead even on the temp gauge now and sounds badass at start up with the mean green.

Thanks Don! The later you do it the better for sure. To many other variables really to work through...

Nice work! Do you still have any sort of template that you can share? Have to do this mod myself. Was also considering this approach:

Awesome patina on that 110, Trevor. The XZLs are a big improvement, too.

Thanks!
I was surprised to discover they were quieter than the MT/R's. Slightly taller, much skinnier, and slightly less wandery when not trying to follow every imperfection in the road.....
I have a LR3 for a shiny car, although my Rangie is kind of borderline....
