    did you make sure you cleaned out all the head bolt holes before dropping the new head bolts into the holes, otherwise it pushed coolant out of the holes to the space between the headgasket and the head and block even before you tightened the bolts up, i did this on my first headgasket change and it caused me to lose the engine because i warped everything (yah, I drove it)
