I know i need a new head and the timing belt kit, but what else should i replace just to take it back to stock. I am tring to make a list of things that i am going to need to order in the next 2 weeks or so, to get her back working. Its only been a day and i already miss her.[headbang]

same thing happened to me, 5 valves had to be replaced. that will more than likely be the outcome in your case as well. best of luck

Expect the worst and hope for the best. Maybe you will get lucky and it won't be to much of an extensive project.

was the car moving while it broke? My buddy had his water pump fail on the highway... took all 30 valves in the v6 out. My belt stripped as I was turning the car on, and it only bent one valve in my v6.

That can make a big difference. I am not an expert, but depending on how many valves are bent, the head may not need to be replaced.

Someone correct me if I am wrong. Good luck because I know how shitty it can feel. [headbang]

Just rebuild the whole head. Get whole new gasket kit, head bolts, t-belt kit, coolant flange.
