Have you got the throttle body air and water lines around the right way?  They usually run rough as shit if they are wrong.

They would turn the oil creamy alright ! 

They are easy to mix and cheaper to fix than a head gasket .

Check all pipes all fine 

took the engine out last week and stripped it down head gasket is gone gutted as I bought it as a fresh rebuild guess that’s the chance you take buying second hand parts off people there not always in the condition you are told they are in

looks great man, I do feel that sometimes the ep70's are either overshadowed by the 82's and 91's, or the KP starlets

Things have still been going low on the build with not having much time but we are still getting there with a Cusco panhard and a visit to AST suspension to get the coilovers probably set up
