    Not necessarily...in fact I'd say rarely do you see oil in the radiator from a blown head gasket. You might see coolant in the oil, but usually you see the engine just overheats and/or you'll see white smoke from the engine burning coolant.

    It would really be best to have the head checked for cracks, decked, and presure tested while you have it off, weigh the cost of a remanded head against the specialty work and go from there.. This is the only why to be sure you're not putting a damaged head back on the engine. I can tell you from some experiance (reason I hate I4's) that if the head has damage you can't see, you'll have the fun of doing it all over again.. I would also suggest (from orig op) a complete top-end gasket set. You may not need or use them all but you'll have everything you'll need too... Better than trying to piece some kind of set together guessing..
    I plan on replacing every gasket, I am buying the full head gasket set.....thanks for the suggestion.....
