You can I always do what I did. Rebuild the engine due to a dropped valve seat and then 2 years later blow a lower back hose on it on the fwy and blow the head gasket without the temp gauge ever showing it get hot and no warning signs of steam or a light. I'm sorry but from my experience the SPI is just altogether a piece of crap. Knowing what I know now I'd do a Zetec swap no matter how difficult it may sound. I think the should redefine the term Split Port on these engines. How bout Split Piston - which is what often happens after the seat drops.
