he definitely had a blowout somewhere... the "chocolate milk" oil color is what you usually get when you blow a head gasket... very commonly, this will kill a motor, as oil + anitfreeze = sand paper.

blew a head gasket, tore down the whole top end of the motor, swapped in a "mild" cam, ported the heads/intake put it back together. new gaskets all away around, deleted my EGR and AIR systems, my long tube headers are in the mail. that milkshake oil was when i drained it the first time, im going to change it again wed, then again after i get my LT's.
