Icon5 Smoke from Oil breather & Oil shoots out of dipstick tube?

Alright well I'm in a little predicament and need the expertise of y'all. Well I have a Civic with a H22A1 swap, and recently while I was driving I noticed that a lot of smoke was coming out of the oil breather and not only that but oil had shot out of the dipstick tube & was just all over the engine bay. So I know that something is wrong with the engine but i don't know what? I've read & heard that it could be bad rings, bad ringlands, a bent valve, bad head gasket, & many others so any ideals?

Sorry about the lack of details & poor description, I'll fill y'all in more in the morning once I get a better look at things if y'all need more information.

Thanks for y'alls time.

Most likely bad rings/lands, and pressure from the combustion process is getting past the rings, pressurizing the crankcase and pushing the oil outta teh breather and dipstick.

You can rent a compression tester from autozone, which will confirm/deny unfortunate news.
