Unhappy coolant in my oil

my truck is dumping coolant into my oil...no smoke and still runs good..I have been planing on a build this winter and gathering parts but I found this today..
96-03 FORD 7.3 POWERSTROKE REMAN DIESEL ENGINE : eBay Motors (item 250468652847 end time Jul-15-10 04:43:10 PDT)

where I'm from finding a good machine shop is hard to come by...the price for this motor with APR head studs and 910 springs is $4000.00 to my door and sending my core back...i asked if it was a PMR or Forged motor..they told me it has steel rod's but didn't say what type of steel...what are your thoughts on this..build my own or start with this?? I'm looking for a strong 500 HP out of this build.....i dont race or sled pull with my truck..its a DD and part time camper/toy hauler..but i do like the feel of 500 HP and do like to show the dodge and chevy guy's what a little ole 7.3 can do...

i would rather spend my cash with a sponsor here..so if any of you can help me out please PM me a price...thanks guy's

Re: coolant in my oil

If you are getting coolent in your oil it may be your oil cooler or an injector cup.
