twigs76 Posted April 24, 2011 Report Share Posted April 24, 2011 Just bought a 97' SLS with 60,000 miles on for $1000.00. Very nice condition with the exception that I am 100% sure a head gasket has failed due to the steam coming from the exhaust. I have already purchased a complete gasket set. After reading several threads from this forum I am going to wait until I find out if and how many head bolt threads have failed. If I find that there has been a failure I have decided to purchase the suregrip head bolt kit from NorthStar Performance. I guess my biggest question is about engine removal. Is it necessary? If so is it possible to remove engine from the top, or is it easier to remove the engine from the bottom. Also, if there is anyone who has used the suregrip bolt kit from NorthStar perfomance, any input would be appreciated on this subject as well.
