Yea, Coolant and oil make a nice mayo like substance. Just don't put it on a sandwich. Could be a head gasket, could be a cracked block. Good thing you're getting rid of it.

Default check your oil

Sounds like you have a coolant mixing with the oil. Don't drive the car until you check your oil. If you find the same goop on your dip stick you have a major problem.

You will kill the engine if coolant is mixing with the oil in the pan!!

Good luck with that! Don't make the same mistake as many other high-numbered members...and try to sell your car on here calling it "stock" .

It is condensation mixed with oil most likely. Depending on how you have your catch can plumbed in you will get more or less of the condensation. Before you go pulling your motor have that stuff checked for coolant. If the same stuff in NOT on your dipstick then it's definately condensation.

You aren't using water injection are you? Big #s on pump.

your focked man, sorry. Coolent is somewhere it's not supposed to be. You were making alot of power though so I guess the possibility of breaking something was never too far off in your mind.

Goodluck getting things fixed and selling the car

If you have to drive the car anywhere still, like to the shop. Change the oil and oil filter.

DON'T do that. At this point, I guess it is possible you have no major damage if it's just a head gasket. Run it long like that and your bearings won't stand it, and you could end up with much more damage. Maybe you didnt' crack a block. Tear it down immediately.

do you do alot of short trips? if you look under the oil cap of most cars that do short trips u will find white substance there thats all condensation in the block very normal for a car thatdoesn't get heated up fully every time. I remember my grandmothers 86 camry did it all the time was unreal did it from 15k on up. Once i got it and started really driving it it went away mostly. I woudn't think head gasket unless u really put a hurtin on that engine.
