Default 06 Head Gasket Replacement

Hey everyone, next week I'm going to tackle the awesome job of replacing the head gasket on my sisters 06 I was wondering if anyone has done this job themselves and would give me some advice if there is anything that will be unexpected. Also, if anyone knows of a step by step procedure that would be great as well! I appreciate any of the feedback! Thanks

Did a write up on an '01, think they changed direction of PS thru bolts-
Saw pics of removed Passenger's headlight to access-
Other than that, don't know what differences would be

Disconnect exhaust and jack passengers side engine WAY up, don't forget to disco exhaust manifold support from block, lift head/ exhaust manifold in one assembly

Are you sure you need too. And if you are, you prepared to replace the head if necessary? Also water pump and timing belt.

As was stated above, there is a headgasket "how-to" by UPTOWN in the top of the "Tech and Performance" section of this site. It's contained in the sticky marked as the "how-to's". As A matter of fact its in there twice. Its very throrough.
