Pulled the bolt seen some coolant leak out, pressurized the coolant system to make the video, and it's doing this on both heads

where the heads checked before doing the valve job?

Yes they were, just had them pretty much cleaned up.... They were working fine with nothing like this happening last year in a turbo tbss

At this point why not try using thread sealer on the bolts and see if it works. Maybe liquid teflon like what g.m. sells in tube. What do you have to loose?
