2 Things come to mind, both bad news
Head gaskets
Bad oil cooler which in turn means bad EGR cooler

It is your oil cooler. i am sure of it. delete your egr when the intake comes off. then do a headgasket test. then flush, flush and flush somemore but you can never really get that oil out.

Spend some time reading through the posts here on the .org to educate yourself about whats going on. Like everyone else said its most likely EGR cooler / oil cooler

Had the same thing happen 2 months ago, had to replace the oil cooler and egr cooler. If you caught it in time it could just be the egr and oil coler, oil coming out of the degas bootle doesn't anyways mean headgaskets. Don't drive it so you don't do anymore damage. Bulletproof diesel has really nice kits if you want to do it yourself, takes the weekend but it's not really that hard. Just be ready to do alot of flushing to get the oil out.

Im not sure what all had to come apart but Head studs are a good idea, definitely EGR delete, and i think somewhere on here ive heard that you can actually delete that oil cooler as well which probably wouldnt be a bad idea since the way the service department talked when i was in there they are a common problem on the 6.0s. ive also heard that the oil in the rubber coolant hoses isnt good for them and its better to replace them, but i cant swear to that.
