Help...J35a4 gasket replace goes wrong

Recommended Posts

With Corona time I decided to update front and back gaskets, along with intake manifold gaskets. I followed the torques specs and installed the new gaskets but on start up the engine didn’t sound right (kind of revving up on its own) or in distress, so I cut it off. There also appeared to be oil burning (which I heard may be normal upon start up)  Anyone have any tips before I go back in....anything I should keep an eye on? Of possible note, I am sending  pic of front valve plug, one which appears dry and orange color  not sure why that is  but that is where the smoke was coming out of when I turned on  

Thanks for any help
