      Long story shortened p.
      Just transplanted my vr6 from wrecked car to new car. 1992.
      Started fine w/o any problems.
      Lo an behold steam and oil smoke from tailpipe.
      Raw oil leaking from header to exhaust pipe joint.
      Wrecked car had antifreeze in it. (rearend wreck).

      Motor Worked fine in previous car. No problems.
      Cracked head is only thing I can figure for raw unburned oil in exhaust.
      Any thoughts?
      Pulling head soon

      Kinda obvious isn't it..... replace the head. Not trying to be a smart a$$, but fix/replace what's broken/cracked.
