I'd check the small coolant hose that goes from your oil cooler to you EGR delete. That's the most common spot for the leak.

Oil loss

Thanks dannyboy950. I have had the heads done and studded bout 300 mile ago haven't noticed any smoke it's back at the shop where or was done. The shop said they had the heads trued up checked for cracks. I have a feeling it'll be my fault some how. I did have a air pocket on the system when I switched my coolant over from what they had in or. It whistled through the cap then burped and was fine no spike on the temp gauge. I had the bottle full to the top when it burped it went to normal operating level. I had straight water in it when this occurred.

Oil loss

Thanks dhanna6. I can see antifreeze coming from the very back of the manifold where it bolts to the head when it's running it foams out and spits it out also mainly bubbles out around the manifold.

the bolts on manifold are tight just waiting now to see what the shop has to say. i'm sure it won't be their fault.

the shop may have not added enough oil when the studs were done. on a bone dry system you need 16-17 quarts, not the standard 15qts on a normal oil change
