I did a leakdown test on my b16a. I put it at tdc and pressurized cyl 1, air came out cyl 2. Then I put cyl 2 at tdc and pressurized, air came from cyl 1. I thought it was a blown HG,so I pulled the head. The motor has arp headstuds and they were tight. The headgasket looks new. Could it be a warped head or something else?

I already took it to the machine shop. I am going to have it decked. I just wanted more info to see if it could be something else. The head looked good also. No pits.
Someone here in town said cracked head,or bent valve, but I really don't see how it would do this.

Thanks for the replies.The block is still in the car, I will try to get a straight edge soon. I looked at the head pretty good and didn't see anything, But it doesn't mean it isn't there. The cylinders look great. I thought it was a HG also but the thing is brand new looking.
