I have seen a few cracked heads on the 2.0 and 2.2 OHV engines, But depending on how hot it got, how long it was ran with a blown gasket, or anything else.  The GM bolts will work but I like ARP Especially if its going to get ran hard or Mod's done to it...  :0

Question One
I've got a 90 GTZ that I just replaced the head (not just the gasket but the head) this past summer.  You will probably find that no matter what, you will need to get the head machined.  Any good machine shop will do a compression test to see if there are any cracks in your head before they plane it.  Also, no matter what you have to replace the gasket once you get it all apart.

Question Two
If you buy a head gasket rebuild kit (I bought the Felpro one) you will save a bundle of cash, get all of the right gaskets and new head bolts.

If it wasnt run much the head shouldnt be cracked but will almost definetly be warped..  I agree w/above and say to take it to a good machine shop (NAPA???)  :D
