    ok guys here is the scoop i have a 95 civic coupe withe a 97 gsr bottom end and a b16 head it had a chipped valve and had 240 compression in all cylinders beside the one that has the chipped valve i replaced the valve and now its running on all 4 but i did notice a small scratch on the wall im guessing it was from the small piece that broke off the valve anyway the car smokes at mid to high rpms i will do another comp test to see what that cylinder is at but can that small scratch/scored wall cause it to smoke it smokes not to bad but more than normal i was thinkin maybe the valve stem seals..this is annoying cuz i love to hit vtec but its embarassing when people r plugging there noses hahaha thanks in advance..:D

    Im betting on the bottom end somewhere.. rings or damaged wall.. had the trouble you had with a chipped intake valve and replaced the head only to find out that the bottom end was the culprit..
