Smile Kia sedona 2.9TCI J3 head rebuild

I have just rebuilt the head in a 2006 kia sedona 2.9TCI J3 engine After an over heat due to rear heater pipe failure. Replaced cylinder head replaced turbo all top end gaskets cam sensor rockers and had all injectors refurbished 1 injector had to be replaced due to breaking apart when it was removed from the original head. Warning 1- Injectors are coded to the ECU so had to take the car to a local KIA garage to carry this out. once the ECU was coded to the injectors in the correct order in the cylinder head all now runs fine Due to all the work that was carried out i have also replaced the timing belt as i would be totally pointless not to carry this out at the time due to the amount of work removing all the engine covers.

Warning 2- ensure all cables are serurely tied away when removing and replacing the head as short circuits cause the ECU to fail replacing the ECU with a second hand unit means recoding the ignition and or replacing the ignition lock
