spent the day thinking.....
silly question..... have you checked the oil level before the ride,,,,?
because, if you were 4th gear 80km/h, the only reason for it, in a 70k km motor, is a lubrication problem.... OR you had some sort of leak and/or some oil consumption (taking the fact that you recently changed your damaged head gasket).... this could be because of the instalatin, or some defect, I dont know.....
just a thought.....
If you want, we can rebuild it "bigger" and stronger.... if I had the money right now, I would buy your motor, giving mine, and rebuild it as the ultimate N/A S38 version, running in ethanol.... but since I cant, I will help you out with everything you need to rebuild it

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you rotect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
