Yes i was unlucky enough for that to happen aswell.

It cost me 200 in parts and I did all the work outside ont he driveway (in december! )

Check out the thread I made when it happened, it gives you a good idea of what work is needed.

You will have bent your valves without a doubt. While your at it you will need a new headgasket and surrounding seals. I also changed my valve stem oil seals while i had the cylinder head off.

Heres the link to the thread I made, I hope it helps you in some way.

Best of luck,
