They aint that bad to work on. Try working on a chebby, especially a 2.4l. I'd rather work on a Ford anyday.

Replacing a HG on a TC is relatively easy to do, and if you go with the stock replacement gasket, total cost is under $20. If you think a HG replacement on a TC is a PITA, try doing the HGs on a FWD 3.8V6 some time. Not absolutely necessary, but given these heads are crack prone, I would fork up the $40 and have it magnafluxed at the local machine shop.
