        Got ya that is one of the first times I have seen that!
        glad to know that works though shit Ls heads around here go for 30-50$ all day lol as for the headgasket question for me and my pmr I am using a Gsr block with b16 head and ordered a p30 head gasket so I'm using a b16 head gasket but you might need to take close pics of both head and block holes and ports and look very carefully at your head gasket you order cause my buddy just had an issue using b20 head on b18a1 block was having headgasket leaking issues due to things not exactly matching up
