Oil leak from passenger side head

I let a buddy of mine hot-rod my truck the other day and afterwards some coolant had sprayed out of the reservoir cap (about half a gallon) and now I have a small oil leak from the passenger side head dripping down onto the right front spring. I have the black maxx tune with straight exhaust (no cat or dpf) and no egr I'm wondering if anyone has had this problem before or if anyone has any experience with this, any help would be greatly appreciated, I am going to try and repair this myself, I'm not sure why this happened any suggestions on why this happened or how to repair would be great

If the truck pukes and the egr is deleted its usually the head gaskets.

Hopefully you didn't pop a glow plug harness out from excessive crankcase pressure.

There's not much that leaks oil over on that side of the engine.

Would that mean something is pressurizing the crankcase system like a cracked piston?
