K then you have oil cooler failure.

Need to replace the oil cooler, egr cooler and anything rubber thats part of the cooling system. The oil cooler ruptures and fills the cooling system with oil. Very common problem with the Ford 6.0L.

That would be the time to delete the egr cooler, if you wish to do so (and can get away with it).
The flush procedure to get the oil out of the cooling system is outlined in a Ford TSB.

Dont really need to worry about the heads right now. There is NO pressurized oil in the cylinder heads, so even if the heads were cracked it would not be the reason for oil in the cooling system.
