Yeah I figured I got a leak just doesn't make sense that the mats are the only thing wet.  Meaning to get to the mats you got to go over or under the carpet and dynamat....but maybe they are just soaking it all up.  I did replace the windshield but didn't use any sealer between the gasket and the frame.  I guess I can put a hose on it and watch to see where if anything comes through.  


Just looking for something streetable, don't haul that much and don't blast around town but want a little more get up and go than I have now with an L16.    Also nothing wrong with my L16 but very rarely are there anything truck related close to me so I figured I might as well get the L20 and just build it up/learn for when the time comes to replace the L16.

2. What is the best head for an L20B? I got access to an L20B shortblock and a bunch of heads(A87 and W58) to choose from but not sure what to get.  Read a bunch of threads but still not clear.
