Following this. I'm in MD, Carroll County, and may need a head gasket job on my 08.

IGA in Westminster is one option, but they are a performance shop, and verbal $3500.

doing everything possible to a Ej253 on a head gasket job, (including a full OEM timing belt, kit, machined heads, plugs / wires).

I would think you can only get to about $2300 so go fish for someplace that does not want to rip you off.

they typically only leak oil externally,...so you can probably live with that for a long long long time while you look. (maybe with a tray under the car like a air cooled porsche if the oil is weeping bad).
