It was on start up so i am sure it didnt bent a connecting rod. It was blowing antifreeze out the exhaust and then after it set a day it filled the cylnders. I build diesel engines everyday and dont have time to be helping friends out with cars anymore. im gonna replace the lower intke as well. you are correct about the sleeve it must ber an update. Im gonna put it back together tomorrow and send it down the road. Thanks for the advice.

Since you mention that about the lower, if I recall correctly, gm says to replce lower with updated one. I never did and never had a problem.

While you're that far down, change out the lower gaskets with the updated ones. You will probably end up breaking the plastic elbows on the passenger side of the intake taking it apart but they're only about $5 for the pair. You're only about 20 mins of tear down from having the lower gaskets taken out. Why stop now?
