Coolant in oil w/egr delete. Please help

I have an 04' 93,000 miles with arp studs. 2weeks ago we installed a sinister egr delete, new oem oil cooler and did all the updates. Driving it today she over heated and I found coolant in the oil. What are the chances of a bad cooler from ford? What else could cause this?

how do you know you have coolant in the oil? With coolant in the oil you need somewhere that coolant pressure is higher than oil pressure. The oil cooler is not this place.

do you have oil in the coolant too? Front cover cavitation behind the water pump is typically the spot but it's not common in a 6.0

I def have water in my oil. I saw on the forum where the front cover can leak bc of cavitation behind the water pump. How can I diagnos this or do I need to just pull the front cover. What can cause the cavitation? Is it a bad water pump or seal?

You need to pull the water pump and look behind it. Typically the wrong type of coolant (green) with no corrosion inhibiters is the cause BUT a very small coolant leak that sucks air can cause it too. I have only seen it in econolines with heater hoses that leak ever so slightly.

Any errosion that looks like it could be a path for coolant to enter in behind the front cover which is a direct path to the oiling system

Here r the pics. I didnt see any damage. I drained the oil and found only a very small amount of water so im thinking I may have just been in a panic when the truck over heated on me. I did how ever determind the h2o pump does need to be replaced with a non made in china crappy pump and with everytjing out of the way ill be pressure washing the road grime. Bc I wont be pulling the cover off we desided to pull my injectors to figure out y they were so noisy. This is a pic of one of the better of the 8.
