Im curious to know the supplier of the engine.
I frankly wouldn't trust a company if their crate engine had a head gasket issue right out of the box.

I'm also a little concerned that it would in fact actually be a gasket. I have not taken apart a 2.7, but I'm betting they use MLS gaskets. And if that's the case, there's not much to fail there. I would bet more on the possibility of a bad machined surface, because the gasket is simply stamped steel and really cant fail without some severe conditions.
I would think it much more likely the head or block isn't true. A MLS gasket needs a near perfect finish to work correctly.
