    Recheck the gasket, may not be sealing properly! Where is it leaking at exactly, front toward the radiator, back side toward the firewall?? Passenger side or drivers side?? Yes i need to know!

    Your gasket isn't sealing for what ever reason! If the engine had that much blowby, it would be smoking badly! Make sure pcv has good vacuum and engine breather is clear. Are the bolts thigt? Sure gasket did not get dislodged on install?
