Is the cap around the coolant bottle white? That's usually the first place for it to go. For as common as it is for a 6.0 to pop a headgasket, it's not terribly common for them to cross contaminate like that though. Coolant and oil really only mix when the oil cooler ruptures. I mean there's the chance the heads can crack and things can contaminate...

Do you have a tuner? Do you have ARP's in now?

As far as I'm concerned, only OEM gaskets should be used. At least until someone else proves that another brand works...
