That's probably your cylinder with the leak.
Are you saying you also had water on the injector, I.E. on the out side of the engine? Kinda confused on your confusion lol. Also what was the plug wet with, fuel, oil, coolant? Can you do a compression test for us? Hope that helps.

Well Mr. Badass I will make the same recomendation I do (and Mr. Grigo is the one that sold me on it.)all the time. Steel block, 5.3 heads, all the other variables will be dependent on money, your own capabilities, and how anal you are.
I currently am building one and 150 for the block and 200 for the heads. If I was younger neither one would go to the machine shop.
