theres no way to tell exactly where the leakdown is until you do a LEAKDOWN TEST.

How To Perform A Leak Down Test - EricTheCarGuy - YouTube

Heres a good video of how to do one. or if you wanna do another test, whatever cyl is 160, pour a little oil into the cyl and do the compression test again. that will tell you weather or no its a ring issue. if compression raises significantly, its a ring problem. if not, then its either your head gasket, or a valve

If the car is untuned, that is more then likely your reason for the rough idle.

Retest the low cylinder.
