Well it seems strange that one cylinder would be so high and not the rest. However have you checked the timing to make sure that the belt didn't skip a tooth? If not make sure all the marks line up. Let me know what you find.

Ok but do you know that both valves were closed when you put air to the cylinder? If so then I would look for a burnt exhaust valve.

I was checking to make sure the manifold wasnt plugged and that the valves were oppening. Set cam lobes on exaust to open valves. Could I have carbon build up on 1 cylinder? Old plug showed normal. If it is a carbon build up can you reccomend product to pour down the spark plug hole so I can let it sit and dissolve? Thanks

Well it is hard to say what will acually work. However with air coming out the exhaust I would have to assume that either that exhaust valve was open or burned or cracked most common. It could be that there is carbon build up but that would mean that the car is drove only short distances and never really warmed up. I drive my car only a mile or so to work so once a week I get it out on the highway and get it up to highway speed and well warmed up. The only thing that I could recomend to help that you could put straight into the cylinder is seafoam. As far as what I would put in the gas tank and oil would be Z-Max. Let me know what happens.
