Had an issue last time I moved the car, when I hit the brakes after boosting, I had large amounts of white/blue smoke coming out from around the headlights and it lost all the oil pressure.

Was driving it a little today after putting a bunch more oil in. Holds oil pressure when cold but once the engine warms up it all disappears (drops to like, 7psi). My turbo is also making a very odd whining noise under very very low load (could be normal during winter, I don't know)

Looked under the oil cap earlier and there's a white residue inside.

I think my head gasket is officially toast. More than a little choked as I put a fair bit of time and effort into this stupid car.

Gotta find some place for it to live until I get enough money together for my 205 swap or I might just part it out, I don't know.

Yup.

Shouldnt be that hard.

I would do it now so that if theres coolant in the cylinders it doesnt just sit in there and rust the cylinder walls.

Id drain the oil/coolant and pop off the head and clean it up a little. Get another HG and head bolts, maybe even the HG kit and slap her back together. After having the head machined

whole head. Leave the intake manifold on when you pull it to make it easier.
