    It is about 16 hours. Not an easy job to do.

    Not sure if there is an upgraded head gasket but this engine blows the gasket allowing compression to leak out the side of the block sounds like a bad exhaust manifold gasket or cracked manifold. Get a dealer head gasket in case the after market gasket.have not caught up yet with improved gaskets.
