        Agree with the above, your only solution is to get it back to Regal and let them sort it out for you.

            should have went to courtsavers...



            serious note get it trailered back to them and charge them for the costs, cant believe you spent all that and they have not called you back!
            surely they should have gice it a good run before releasing the car mate?

                  I'd be suprised if the exhaust gasket was missing.... Also when you did the head gasket did you use new head bolts etc?

                  Since the rebuild did you actually run the car in?

                        steve you told me you found a split in the plastic stat housing that you could not find last week,and you were going to change it yourself,also mate hitting temps of 130 degs because of water loss will not help your head gasket.
                        mate get it back down if you need it looked at, also you told me you are still driving it,so drive it down.

                            Bloody hell mate very nice spec. You must have a fair bit of cash.

                            Stronger valve springs? Get a pic of your car up mate. And yes carry on with it now mate
