I changed the head gasket, felpro after having the engine head milled but still have oil and water mix. I plan to disassemble and have the head pressure tested. The new gasket did not do the job I am concerned it may be a cracked head or block. Any advice?

The shop that milled the head should have been able to check it for cracks, and should have suggested it.

You said the machine shop milled the head. Therefore they should have pressure tested and inspected the head for cracks/leaks. Additionally, you should have used a thicker head gasket to compensate for the milling. Did you flush the oil and coolant passages? You can do a test at the radiator reservoir to see if you detect cylinder gases.
