Looking for some ppl to throw questions at regarding a rebuild.

I started out with a smoke test to find my rough idle at startup which it did, it was disa and valve cover. Next was a compression test. cyl 1-5 were all at 120psi and cyl 6 was high 140's and wet. I purchased the car last year, I have done a complete cooling overhaul, ccv, vanos, alternator, suspension, fuel pump/filter, coils, plugs, waterpump....i could go on a little bit more but you get the idea.

Basically i need a head gasket..my old man is retired car guy and is just pushing me to fix whats broken but this motor has 156k and leaks from every spot i havent touched yet... oil pan, head (obviously) filter housing... mains are probably weeping too.

I think if i just go all the way the car is pretty much up to date. but i have some questions about some internals and could use some foresight in planning. Ive scoured the forums for a couple days now but havent been lucky.

I need some wisdom please pm me!

Thanks in advance
