 It would be pretty special to get the oil and coolant lines wrong on a turbo but did you?

I don't know. My powers aren't that good.

You didn't. Or, if you did, renounce your title asap cyka.

May just be residual?

They're different sized lines, so typically won't be the cause..

Is it an auto? If so could be from the heat exchanger in the bottom of the radiator. Have you got water in the oil? Blown head gasket?

Hey guys so I've just done my first engine swap and I have oil in my radiator, I have a top mount turbo that's oil and water cooled  so did I get the lines the wrong way around? 

just to be sure that new engine is ok you need to sniff an exhaust if it smells like coolant - congrats, head gasket is blown
