    That's the way to do it, take a repair and make it an upgrade.

    That's probably your cylinder with the leak.

    Edit

    Are you saying you also had water on the injector, I.E. on the out side of the engine? Kinda confused on your confusion lol. Also what was the plug wet with, fuel, oil, coolant? Can you do a compression test for us? Hope that helps.

    Right on brother, So that just means that was your cylinder affected by the bad head gasket, So your original plan sounds solid to me too.

    Well Mr. Badass I will make the same recomendation I do (and Mr. Grigo is the one that sold me on it.)all the time. Steel block, 5.3 heads, all the other variables will be dependent on money, your own capabilities, and how anal you are.

    I currently am building one and 150 for the block and 200 for the heads. If I was younger neither one would go to the machine shop.
