Compression testing results
Dry:
CYL1: 120
CLY2: 110
CLY3: 100
CYL4: 120

Wet: they all went up between 180 and 270 but I guess that depends on how much oil I put in. Regardless its pointing to the rings not holding compression. Possibly from running rich and washing the cylinders.

I didnt see any material in the oil when I drained it but I could be in the baffle area so I will need to drop the pan and look further.

I will do leak down test next.

You can build the most awesome thing in the world but at some point, an 80yr old man in a crx is probably going kick your butt on the track... don't ask me how I know.

No bearing material in the oil pan!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!!! I'm going to put a borescope down inside spark plug holes and up from the bottom to see if there's any scoring on the cylinder walls.
