    I was joking....
    It can be straightened though. You'll need a press. Then will have to heat it up,
    and cool it off in a precess to restrengthen the allow.
    NOT worth it because it's cheaper to buy a new/used one.

    I'm glad I have new injectors. IMG_20191016_122756.jpeg IMG_20191016_190713.jpeg IMG_20191016_190743.jpeg

    The condition of the injectors and intake ports speaks volumes. This engine NEEDS an oil catch can, as early as possible.

    Thanks for the nice pictures.
    What I didn't know, they only have variable valve timing on the inlet side.

    I'm gonna say this. Every head bolt needed different torque to break free. This supports my theory that the head bolts are streaching. So when the war between combustion vs head gasket reaches a point where the headboard are long enough to give opening to combustion. Combustion makes a break for it into nearest opening

    Oven cleaner and pressure washer time! :)
    Synthetic oil keeps things looking new.
