i got jdm sir swao and the gasket with a screen that goes between the vtec cyleniod and block keeps breaking and leaking oil. the original one on there have a very slow leak, so i replaced it with a new one and it leaked again the next day, i replaced it again and it leaked again, both had a small tear in the same spot. so i replaced again and it lasted about 3 weeks until 4 days ago it leaked again. i thought didn't install it right because 3 have broken in a month, so i took it to a Honda dealer to have them put it on. They are one of the best Honda dealer in the state, so i know that they did it right. but it just broke again today. i have asked everyone around the area that do engine swap and work on Hondas and no one have seen this happened before. one guy did mention that maybe my oil pressure regulator is not working properly and my oil pressure is too high. what do you guys think.
