ok i had overheating trouble a while ago and a friend of mine that has a supra told me that the thermostat causes it...sometimes it wont open causin the engine to overheat...so instead of replacing it, remove it and seal it with that black silicone...that worked for me

FYI, oil in the sparkplug valley doesn't mean BHG... you may just need to burp the air out off the system after changing all those components. (or replace the thermostat-go with a toyota one)

Do a compression check before you worry too much, then you'll know

Do a block test, it will tell you if there are combustion gases in the cooling system... you can also do a compression test and then a leakdown test. The leakdown test pressurizes each cylinder while it is at TDC, if you see air bubbles coming up out of the radiator when doing a leakdown test you have a bhg, cracked block, cracked head.
