    sounds to me like they gave you a motor with a blown head gasket

    the head gasket could of blown on it's own but who knows unless you ask osaka (yeah like that will work lol)...change it along with your water pump and timing belt...while you pull head off rotate your motor and check your pistons...if you don't know the proper torque specs and the proper way to pull the head off i suggest having someone who knows how to do it help you...someone on here's knows exactly what to do...just ask

    when you pull the head i suggest milling it.

    and then get an OEM headgasket...and try again.

    first i'd see how it runs though...

    just mill it like .003 or something to clean it up.. or .020" if you want to bump the compression

    i got a blown head gasket too on my jdm b16...its leaking oil....but not a lot...and the motor is blowing white/greyish smoke. I know its burning oil...but i don't know if its me adding too much oil or not..cause the dipstick i'm using is from a gsr and not a b16. is there a difference? I'm planning to replace my headgasket next week, and get a b16 dipstick from HONDA. But i got to know if there is a difference in the length of the dipstick of gsr and b16.
