The CD is very clear on the need to remove the head on the 116 engine. Hopefully, there is a work-around because the biggest danger in this job is that the head bolts will pull the threads out of the block. The bolts are not perpendicular to the block, so a special jig is needed to re-drill the holes for the inserts.
And you gotta buy a gasket set!
