    Friend of the wife has a 97 2.8 and has been told her that head gasket needs replacing (left bank) and has been quoted £800 !!!
    This seems extortionate?

    Any ideas as to this being realistic prices fellas?

    If the left bank has gone, i'd consider doing both banks!!

    diy is cheapest option though.

    I rebuilt a 2.8 last year and its not all that difficult to do. Change the timing belt, water pump and cambelt whilst your in there.
