Help Help needed desperately

Hi, I'm pretty new to the Alfa world after buying my first one in Jan this year. I have a 156 2001 1.8 TS. Last week my head gasket went. I spoke to a garage today who said i might even need a new head as Alfa's are porous. Can anyone recommend a good garage in Norwich. I already have a new gasket and head bolts as my mate was going to try and do the work but he doesn't have a twincam setting/locking tool, unless of course anyone has one I can rent from them???

All help appreciated!!!

You can now get a set of camshshaft locking tools at a very reasonable price. Just search the internet under "Alfa Romeo 156 camshaft" and more than one offering should come up, and also working instructions.
