Have you done a compression test on each cylinder?

how was the flow through the rad once you replaced the items listed. Did you let it run long enough for the new t-stat to open and get good flow and air locks out of the system. I'm assuming you installed a 195deg t-stat. What temps are you seeing on the highway?

Yeah it's a 195 the Flo is good. the upper hose is boiling hot and lower is cold and if you take off the lower hose and put a bucket under it full of coolant it will suck up coolant.i have flushed it and vacuum filled the system i am lost everything works if you stay off the highway.soon as you get above 2200 rpm it will climb Temp

So the flo through the new rad was good, t-stat opened, coolant circulating prior to capping the system, Running pre- mix coolant or 50/50 mix all good. Before we consider bringing the bottom end into the discussion, How many klm's have been drivin since the new parts/ heads installed. When you say running hot above 2200RPM, what temperature was/is it hitting ? Do you have a working temp gauge ?
