my sister had the same problem 3 months ago at first it was only 5 minutes slowly worked up to 10 minutes ans so on you would think that every ring in it was shot after it cleared it was like a different engine. i did all the same s**t even replaced the head, i was just about to replace the motor but i wasnt going with the idea that the bottom end was gone it didnt sit right so as a last resor i ran a engine flush replaced the oil and filter and it hasnt blown a drop of smoke since.
