I had my 2.5 built for my '05 STI with many goodies to include sleeves, o-ringed, head studs, billet crank, forged pistons/rods, ect. The problem is that when the motor was started up coolant began spraying out the exhaust. We dropped the header to find cylinder 1 was being washed out, all water not by fuel. The shop has since been searching for the mystery leak with no idea. We are all stumped. Can anyone suggest anything? To be clear, the Cometic head gasket looks great, the sleeve is in its place, the head held on the pressure tester, and the studs are all fine.

Any pictures of your built? Who did the sleeve and which one they are?

I have a step decked block with Darton ductile iron sleeves, o-ringed. All the work was done at and by CNC in Winchester, VA where the car is still and they cannot figure it out. I will link pics tomorrow.
