I am building a k20a2/k24a1 frank and am pretty much completely done all I need to do is drop the motor in. My previous k20a2 broke a rod and bent some valves. I replaced all of the valves and swapped in the k24a1 block. Everything was preped cleaned and checked various times. All parts are installed and now I just want to make sure that the motor is just right. I was wondering how I would do a compression test or leak down test with the motor still on the stand. I don't want to go through all of the trouble of dropping the motor in the car only to find out that I have a leak somewhere and then have to pull it out and take everything apart once more. I have no issue having to disassemble anything with the motor out of the car, that's not a problem. But having to install the motor and all the wiring only to find out that I have a leak would not be fun. Any input and/or advice is much appreciated.
