Can i reuse head gaskets in they're still in good condition? I'm debating taking the heads off while i've got the engine apart, but new gaskets are gonna cost me $180. :cry:

yep, should never re-use any gasket. Espcially a head gasket. Look on ebay for whole gasket kits. I got a good one for my 5ltr for $100.
