Are you sure its not leaking oil?  valve seals??

The valve seals were replaced when the head was built the first time, and they were just replaced again and it's probably not even been 1000 miles.  I spoke directly to the guy that did the work on the head, he didn't say anything about leaking valve seals - just carbon build up.  He did question how exactly the jet valve elimination bolts work.  He pointed out there is still a void in the valve area that in his opinion would create turbulence.  He did say though he's not overly familiar with this motor so he admitted he wasn't entirely sure.  So if anyone has insight on that I'm curious.
