HELP! Coolant in Crankcase

I've been losing coolant for a long time and never knew where it was going and I was in a few days ago checking my fuel pressure (cuz my sending unit apparently went bad) so I had my intake off down to the CCV breather tube and noticed moisture that wasn't oil so I popped the vent tube off the crankcase and stuck my finger down it and my finger was dripping with coolant when I pulled it out. Can someone please tell me what's going on. Any input would be appreciated.

6.0l Powerstroke late 2003 early '04/ EGR Delete/ 4" straight exhaust/ Sinister Coolant filter system/ Amsoil Oil bypass system/ Scan Gauge II/ Triple Pod pillar gauges (boost,transtemp,fuelpress) Atlas 40 FICM

This has happened a few times now, it seems that a hole forms on the head and let's coolant start to leak into the oil pass.

That's what I was afraid to hear. Cavitation erosion. So what? Tear it down to the heads and replace whichever one is damaged?

IMO I would tear it down because that's more than likely what's wrong with it. The only other thing I could think of would be the head gasket let go near a water port but either way it has to be torn down.

It's always me that has a problem that no ones heard of. I guess I won't know exactly what's wrong until I get down there.
