Default Do you think i warped my head?

Yesterday i was doing a trial run around hear in my county. I had a long trip planned this weekend
and drove about 85 miles yesterday and luckly the radiator busted when it did and not like 100 miles into
the trip.i think the radiator didnt bust till i was close to my house i think. so thats a good thing.
i have a b20b with a y21 transmission and thats **** revs crazy high like 4000 and 80mph so i guess the pressure rised in the radiator and bam that **** busted. my question is do you think i warped my head driving like maybe 4/5 of the way up on the temperture gauge for about 7 miles tops could be way way less i saying worse case senerio

Minimum healthy cylinder compression is 135.

Again, do a compression test.

yikes, why didnt you stop driving if you knew the rad was gone?
Aluminum heads only take a second to warp.

was there any oil in your coolant or coolant in your oil?

Blast the heater when that **** happens, helps minimally.

All the way up, to the very top of the gauge? or like 3/4 up? 4/5 is not registering with me.

Sometimes if the radiator busts at the top seam it will not leak a lot of coolant, just puddle out, where did it break?

Your head should be fine, but it probably wouldn't hurt to flush your coolant system and do an oil change.
