i agree jazz. but all of this is helping me learn. Even if it's the hard way. I am just relieved to know my sleeve is still good. Also would the gasket on the muffler manifold have any effect if it was bad??

Yes bad gaskets will also cause tuning issues. When in doubt replace them. Their cheap and it should be preventative maintenance.

I know bud, but your learning the hard way, and the expensive way
We've all been there and done that and as much as we try to help..there's too many possibilities for any of us to know for sure. Are you going to try all the things that were suggested? I would bet even if you do there"s a strong possibility that:

A. you wont fix the problem.
B. You may make things even worse.

Do you know how to seal an engine? Just because your bearings are new does not mean they are OK. My V-spec came from the factory with a leaky front bearing that was sucking air. Just try to find someone local, and don't try working on a $300 engine yourself..I'd hate to see you have to buy another one..but, the bottom line is it its your money and your engine and only you can make the final decision
