I been having random issues with smoking past few months, after several times doing compression and leakdown test coming out perfect motor finally gave out. During a datalog test trying to fix a misfire in cyl 4 the engine gave out and the signs of the issues that the motor has been having finally really show. Here is the setup and test numbers for compression and leakdown test. My question is with results, I think I might refresh the head and slap it back on with upgraded parts or should I just find lower mileage engine and replace it. Really appreciate you guys input if you guys have any questions please lmk thanks!

You found the problem, but you need to know why the problem popped up before you can make the right decision. Is the damage mechanical? Maybe FOD damage to the valve or seat? Or is it operational? Perhaps a Cyl1 lean condition that burned the valve?

Regardless I think it's time to pull the engine and remove the head to figure that component out.
