Replace the header and get another etest done. Why rebuild an engine over this? Seems strange and a waste of money to me.
Find out why it's failing beside the header if the etest tells you that.

A rebuilt '05 Unlimited w/ 6 spd, 4.0, 3" BDS springs, front locker, warn front bumper, PS corners, rock sliders and the list goes on and on.
Former Jeeps: 79 CJ7, 81 CJ7 Renegade, 85 CJ7 and a 95 YJ.
Project car: Big Block 4spd 69 mach 1 (it's back on the rotisserie for the final time).

If you need a good honest mechanic let me know. My uncle is in Lasalle and has been in business for many years.
