Just make sure the garage have the cam locking tools!

I reckon you'll be looking at about a grand ish for both head gaskets done on a V6.

it really does depend where they are getting the parts from

Alfa workshop sell a head gasket for £40 and the headset is about £180, but that doesn't include head bolts

Are you talking about the V6 or the Twin spark?

aghhh sorry i thought you had told the garage to do the work, and not got a cost! - I did think you might be in for a shock! I hope someone good is doing the work! Itll be worth it once its on the road
