Not that I have done this before but isn't it just like, take the head off and pretty much new seal and new head then shazam put it all together and burn some rubber again?

yeah its on the new gasket packaging on a how too. but u will need a new plenum gasket, Intake manifold gasket and exhaust mani gasket and a few others + while ur at it may as well do a thermostat and some other majors. get me??
saves u pulling it down again and do it all again when something goes.. so for piece of mind go for it/.
