Default Head gasket changing

sorry not about saxo's just wondering if anyone can help? While seaching for a new car i found a 300zx with a blown head gasket dirt dirt cheap, whats changing a head gasket like or how much would it be to get a garage to do it, for the price of the car it would be worth doing it for fun or breaking the car but to cover all options how hard is it?

its a bastard job compared to a normal headgaskete as its a v6 and the engine bays are tight as fuck but its not particularly to hard jsut time consuming but then if you do it yourself then i suppose u could do it cheap enough, remember with it being a v6 there will be two heads. not sure how much a garage would do it for on a normal inline 4 type engine ur looking at around £400 for a head gaskette but on these there is alot more involved, best bet would be to go on a 300zx forum/owners site and ask
