    Gsi low compression

    Running a wallace performance map, vxr turbo, vxr injectors and rail, regal cam, full exhaust, fmic courtaney intercooler etc. Mileage is 67k ran great for ages and recently started running lumpy, smoke/oil coming out rocker cover breather. I put back on standard breather pipe instead of the mini filter and now smoking out exhaust? Cylinder 1 and 3 low compression, 2 and 4 good.
