Well get us a pic of the motor and try to get a up close of the valve covers, we'll be able to tell you if its ARP studded and if you'll need to have them change out the EGR and oil cooler

check the Oil and coolant deltas and the FICM voltage..

Check for any coolant puking/coming out of the degas bottle cap area under hard acceleration...

oil leaks, 4x4 works?
