head gasket?

hello there subaru guys! my buddy just got himself a 05 WRX, and well, it has some problems. im an audi guy so i dont know too much about these boxxer engines. first off, he has the stock td04 turbo in it with a fat test pipe, sounds amazing. these turbos are oil AND water cooled right? its missing both coolant lines, and theres crust around the holes which says there used to be lines there. thats the lesser of the problems. it smokes like crazy at start up, and after idling for a while. we took off his intercooler and noticed some orangish brown liquid sitting in his throttle body, smelled like gas. and i happened to remove his radiator cap, and his coolant was foamy. im guessing he has a blown head gasket? its still under warrenty so we're trying to get it figured out
