Leaky valve seals or my rings didn't sit right. There's oil on my pistons and exhaust ports are wet.

Wow, almost everything I hear about cascar these few years are not good at all. Used to hear nothing but good things from people who has had their service, but seems that the workmanship and quality is going down fast.

So, you had them do the machine work and assemble it for you?

No. I needed to smog and it failed miserably. I took it out before I got to test it. So what's my best bet?

They assembled the head and did the machine work. I had someone else put the block together.

Who wants to tear open my engine? I hope it's just a leak seal or seals and not the block. Did I messed it up breaking it in on the dyno? Blown head gasket?

Broke in my motor on the dyno. Put the motor in, towed it to the dyno adjust here and there for idle and drove it on the dyno. Been running just as good the day it came off the dyno about 2.5 years ago.

Take it back to cascar and see what they have to say about it.
