Nope, failed oil cooler. Should be much cheaper than head gaskets. Though flushing the block and radiator can be a PITA.

Failed oil cooler would be where I would go, the oil cooler is mounted in the valley under the intake system.

You're probably right.
I didn't see that it was a V6 until you brought that to my attention.
