Who did the work, and what gaskets were used?

Block could have issues, but I suspect the workmanship on the job first.

there are only a few reasons that could cause this:

1) workmanship IE studs not properly torqued in the proper order
2) surface of block or heads not within spec
3)faulty gasket
4) too high of cyl pressure IE egr leaking , way too hot of a tune or too much boost (niether is likely since the delete is done and I doubt you are running too much boost or tune for those studs.

I think that is about it, unless there is something I am forgeting

Well actually alot more detail would be appreciated if you expect us to help diagnosing it!

Could just be a bad degas bottle cap for all we know now


OP: What exactly is going on as you never even gave us one symptom that you are experiencing

My post is solely based on the knowledge that the OP is 100% sure the gaskets are blown and that nothing else is going on.

Yup!

Nothing against you or even toward you... More toward the OP to explain so we wouldn't be guessing
