    So I put my z6 into my ej2 and the radiator broke so I replaced it yesterday and it overheated again I read that if you replace all the cooling system and it still overheats it might be a blown head gasket my oil is still good the sintoms are white smoke with water on the tail pipe and keeps blowing radiators can any body help

    Have you blown out the coolant system to make sure there is no blockage?

    Leak down test? Maybe compression test?

    Agree'd ... Compression test it... If you over heated the car you could have cracked a piston sleeve... another is yes a head gasket. run the car till the smoke comes out... turn it off remove the Spark plugs if there wet well you know something more then fuel is getting into the cyl... also if u messed with your intake manifold gasket there is a coolant passage that runs along it and if the gasket went to **** it could be leaking into intake mani into ya motor
