Pushing air into my coolent!

Hey guys i recently blew my driver side headgasket.. it ran like #### as you can imagen.. I got home and did a compression test and sure enough it was about 90 on cylinder 2.. Long story short i ended up replacing both headgaskets (just cause i was already there) I had the driver side head checked out and i had no cracks and wasnt warped... I get it all put back goether with felpro 9333 headgaskets and arp studs(torqed to 85ftp) turn it on and it still runs like ####..

I figured it was a sensor or my maf was going back so i take it for a drive.. what do you know it heats up still

After some testing i figured out it was still pushing air into the coolent.. I dont understand where it could be coming from other then the block has a crack or is warped..

I did do a compession test on cylinder 2 and 3 and it had 130 on both.. Any input?? Would the intake manifold cause this??

You can rent a radiator pressure tester..build up some pressure maybe to see if its leaking somewhere?.....Also im sure you did Burp the system..got all the air out?....

A leak down test would tell you which cylinder/cylinders is to blame.

Any coolant being pumped out of those cylinders during cranking?

When you put it back together torque the upper row of bolts to 95 and lower 85. I had pretty close to the same problems.
