I'm assuming you're talking about you performed a leak down test and not a compression test? Either way, post up some numbers. Was a valve job performed when the head was assembled? Are you using a standard headgasket or did you use a metal one? Did YOU rebuild the motor or did someone else? More information would be seriously helpful.
I rebuilt the motor, i tested all of the cylinders and they all had zero compression, I am using a oem felpro headgasket. The rings are fine because i pulled the cams so the valves stayed closed and it held 90 psi in cylinder #4 (i assume this is normal considering the rings haven't been broken in yet.) , i didn't see a point in testing the other cylinders as the problem seems to be with the timing. I have redone the timing 5 times all from the FSM but yesterday i saw someone say that the FSM has the incorrect information in the s13 FSM. So i found a JW cam install guide that i am going to try tmr.
