    Oil leak from head gasket????????

    I'm getting oil dripping out from where the head meets the block on the dizzy side in the front.
    I thought it was the head gasket so i changed the HG with a brand new Honda oem head gasket, put in brand new aebs head studs (Thanks to MB). new golden eagle cam seal and new vtec sol. gasket. everything up to the valve cover was torque down to specs and proper torque sequence. Everything was triple check as a matter of fact. Everything looked good and done started the car, ran for about 3-5 mins sounded good but when I looked I noticed oil still dripping out from the exact same spot.
    People have been telling me that I might have warped the head or block. Now I have never overheated before which they say is what would cause the head/block to warp, also there was no mixture in the oil or coolant, I did notice white smoke before the head gasket was changed.
    What do you think is wrong? If you suggest it is a warped head what can have caused it to warp without overheating?
    BTW these problems all happened out of no where, the car always ran good no problems I parked the car for about 3 days without driving and when I went to use it on the 4th day BAM all these problems with the white smoke and oil dripping out.

    Here a pic of the area that the oil seems to be dripping out of....





    Please only post if you have some real info about my problem and not just trying to get your post count up.

    Some of the dowels used in ls vtec kits sometimes dont allow the head to be flat against the deck of the block. I'd check that.
