ok i have a major problem. water is getting into the second cylinder and straight out the exhaust and a fair bit of water came out after 20 seconds running time and water came out of the spark plug hole. we have rebuilt the head and put it back on but still has a problem. any help? P.S. just gotta say that it takes 5 minutes for all water to be gone and car to overheat, way to rapid HELP

A cracked bore can also cause this.

was the head pressure tested? cause it sounds like there is something more serious than a head gasket going on. Maybe a cracked water gallery that is dumping the water right into the cylinder.
