Yea, I live in brooklyn, NY and there are a good handfull of turbo cressidas out here. Theres this especially fast one. Its an 87 white . Greddy sp exhuast and a fully worked JDM 7M-GTE. He pushes an estimate of more than 25-30 psi of boost. So when i heard this i was ok he should at least have a 2.0 mm think MHG. Then i was at my other friends house who has a next turbo cress and he was tellin me how the guy with the white cressida blew the head gasket, and i was like man how do you blow a 2.0 mm head gasket. I guess it can be done, givin the circumstances. Anyway, i just wanted to share a story with you guys. Lataz

It sounds like you don't know what kind of HG the cressida is running with. You say you assumed a 2mm, but you never said that you had confirmed this.

You can blow any gasket. Many people are "stupid" enough to not install one (EDIT FOR SPELLING --->) INcorrectly. If you properly in stall a metal head gasket then it should never blow.

Same way you blow a stock one. Too much boost, not enough octane.

It could also be that he didn't retorque the head (if using bolts), they get a little loose after a while. Mine did, I retorqued it to 90lbs
