Default possible blown head gasket not entirely sure

I have recently bought a 95 sc300 with 187, 000 for what I thought was a good deal. The guy said all it needed was a radiator. It idles rough and there is no coolant in the oil. I drove it a little bit I made sure it didnt overheat but when I checked the oil cap it looked like choclate milk. Since then I havent seen the choclate milk looking oil again. The water boils in the radiator and goes somewhere and i cant find any leaks and I plan on getting a new water pump, radiator and thermostat. Im still debating on getting a gasket kit im not entirely sure yet. Anybody have advice?

find a low mileage motor and drop it in.

Sounds like a blown gasket, if you can do a compression test.

How much would a low mileage engine run me?

my advice is to replace your headgasket. remove head, have it shaved the smallest amount, install TT gasket and ARP head studs, replace head, strap a turbo to it, do the tt ecu mod and start boosting around.

Yeah I was thinking about the na-t setup but I like the the idle of a 1.5jz with 272 cams it sounds badass. the torque gain is also a plus
