Well right before winter came, I blew the headgaskets on my 3.8 thunderbird. Since I store the car in the Winter it really didn't matter to me. Now that I took everyhting apart and had the heads checked out, they came back with several large cracks in them. So now what do I do, just buy new heads, split port swap, new motor. Money really isn't an issue but time is (which also includes finding the parts) so no v8 swaps for me.
