again, not a reoccuring problem if you dont cheap out and fix it properly. people just slap a new stock HG in, reuse stock head bolts, and dont machine the head, and then wonder why it blew again.

do it right, with proper machine work, and new ARP bolts torqued properly, and it will be fine.

When I did my engine rebuild I decked the block and machined the head and replaced the stock headgasket with a metal one. It's still driving around Victoria at 18 psi daily, 2.5 years later.

Twin turbo? automatic?

anything can be reliable.. it all comes down to the history and how well it was maintained.
the 2J motors is one of the strongest and best motors toyota every made, but if someone neglected it and beat on it it's entire life it wont be reliable.
Compression check, accident report, K's, upgrades etc...
