    Angry How hard is it to....

    Take the Driver side head off of my 2000 t/a? I installed headers and I realized that the previous owner somehow broke off that last bolt right next to the firewall.. there is basically no getting a drill to it unless maybe an expensive angle drill (which I do no have)... So how hard and what will I have to do to just pull that head off, drill the bolt out and put everything back together?

    I say if you're gonna go through the trouble of taking the head off is to do both and get them ported and polished. Or get a new set of heads to slap on. I haven't done a head swap on these cars, but I have done them on others and it wasn't to hard. Since you did the headers yourself you should be able to do the heads too. Check out one of the help websites to find some info, like ls1howto.com or install university. I did my headers and one of my concerns was breaking a bolt (but i didn't), sucks you couldn't control your fate on this one.
