I was wondering about using a metal head gasket on an engine that hasn't been blown yet. I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, but if the gasket hasn't been blown do I need to resurface the head. My main question is does anyone know of a good place in the Sacramento area that does a good job of surfacing the head. What kind of things should I look for when finding a shop? I've read a few places you can get away without doing it but I'd rather not have to go through with the swap for a long time. Just lookin for some feedback.
