166,500 and some change. Had to pull the head cause I couldn't find the source of a coolant leak after replacing the reservoir. Glad I did because the head was warped. Tech put the straight edge on there and pulled out his feeler gauge.... it slipped under there with ZERO resistance at the highest tolerable thickness gauge.

Getting it pressure tested and cut. Hopefully, he won't find any cracks, if he does and can fix it, fine. If he can't fix it, guess I'm saving up for a new head.
