The only place fuel and coolant come together is in the cylinder head. Either the cups are still leaking or the head is cracked.

could also be that you had more fuel in the cooling system than what you thought and the fuel you are seeing is from the block itself I would trying flushing the block a few times before I go and start ripping heads off

Yes coolant goes through the oil cooler. I would still lean towards the injector cups or O-rings not being right still.

Yeah coolant goes through the oil cooler but fuel doesn't. If you are sure it's fuel then either the cups didn't seal right, there was fuel leftover that wasn't flushed or the head is cracked.
