Head Gasket DIY

United States

#1 Mar 24, 2009
My friend bought a '96 outback 2.2 for $2750 last week. It has a blown head gasket. I have heard that there's a way to tap the intake manifold cross-tube to reduce the cooling system pressure to prevent future failure. Anybody done this or know of a URL to someone who has? Also, anybody have tips for this R&R?
Thanks many times over!
