litshoot Hopefully headgasket. If not could be a cravked block, bad turbo. Oil has much higher pressure than your coolant.

DONT NEED STUDS FOR 7 LBS OF BOOST ON A BBF, UNLESS YOUR TUNE IS WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY OFF AND YOUR KILLING IT

Oil in Coolant system

I recently herd a ticking noise in the engine so I decided to look into it. Checked oil and nothing registers on the dip stick. Looked in the radiator and seen oil. Could a bad head gasket cause this or is it the block or bad heads?
