Or better yet, you and fairyflower can meet up, tie your cars together and play tug of war.

Loads will be at maximum.
On both cars and both gays.

Or you could just tie the rope to your car and hold the other end with your teeth, just let it pull you along with somebody else driving.

Why not just tie the rope to your car, hold the other end in your teeth, get in the car, and drive off? That way you dont need another person. O

I'm seriously thinking about pulling the head off this car tonight, and putting it back on tomorrow with a new gasket. Thoughts? Seriously, am I crazy?

Can you do that without milling the head?

I just decided that you should do it. Now get working and make sure to get out all the oil from those head bolt holes.

I doubt the head warped after 200 miles.

Do it. It's the only way this problem will not go for another 1244 pages here.

Do Miata ARP studs have socket heads so you can pull them out the top of the head? If so, do it. Otherwise eff it. It's a lot more likely that the skeets under your studs will hydrolock and crack the block before enough of it makes it around the threads to contaminate the head gasket.

Lol, I'm not working on the car. This means I'll have to drink myself to sleep for the rest of the week, I won't go fast at the track because I'll be worried about blowing up the car, and I'll wish I had stayed home and saved money to buy a Giken. I need medication.

Do it, just for the piece of mind of nothing else.

There's also the chance that the block was warped since I didn't surface that because I didn't want to pull the bottom end.
