    Yah it can be done, it is a little tough to lean over but that is the way most people do it. Buddy who i helped forgot to drain the coolant first, it went everywhere.

    do some research of race car shops and take note of your miles when u bring it in . head gaskets are common on turbo cars make sure u go with mls gaskets they seal alought better. $1500 ball park if the turbo has to come off $1000ballpark if they take the engine out and hot tank it(Clean it) if they have to hot tank your engine which i always do with an engine that poped a head gasket . just make sure you also get reliable arp head bols while u are paying for it
