150 isn't very much compared to other motors. I've had em at 200 with no problems.
Cross tighten the head bolts evenly with 10 inch pound progressions up to 115.

I dug out my compression tester and I am around 90psi now. I guess something blew, time to rip it apart. I am hoping it's just something in the top end. I did put new seals and bearing in the bottom end when I put it all back together.

Maybe your tester needs testing

I've never seen more than 160psi on a stock 2-stroker...high performance sleds included...modified maybe...but at 200+ psi I'd girdle the head on a little motor with very little cylinder studs...maybe the OEM parts can handle it but not the Chinese kit...it popped at 150...
