Is it easy to change head gaskit on a mk6 rs2000 and do u need any special tools to do this

On the scale of engine repairs - changing a head gasket is a precise job.

A torque wrench is required to put the right amount of tension to the bolts when refitting the head. Sometimes the cylinder head won't come of that easily - an engine hoist is a big help to get the head of evenly at every side.

Then removing the old gasket can take sometime since it can't be scraped of by force. When rebolting the head - the order in which bolts are fixed is very important - you need the bolt pattern from a service manual.

The rest of the job is rather straight forward - best to do inside.
