oem sr20vet mls head gasket
has anyone had ans sealing issues with a new oem sr20vet head gasket? the head gasket sat in the package it cam in at my shop for a couple of months and I am using arp2000 head studs (from mazworx) I torqued down in sequence first round 45 ft lbs and second round 65 ft lbs but the water and oil was mixing and when I pulled the head off it seams like the gasket isnt sealing so just from other expirences has any one had any issues with these gaskets?

was the block/head decked, or checked for flatness? I havent had any issues with sealing on these MLS gaskets, but I have always made sure block and head were flat.
