1998 F150 4.2L Lower Intake???

Ok, so we had a problem before with the Lower Intake gasket blowing(common I know). We replaced this gasket before doing research and knowing about the Updated gaskets Ford released , meaning we had to put in a new Lower intake Gasket, this makes the 3rd time now that it has blown. Its showing the same symptoms as another Lower Intake gasket. My question is, Will these gaskets allow coolant to flow into the oil, at such a rapid pace as pour in the Overflow, and running right out the drain plug? It has did this every time now, and replacing the Gasket has fixed it for some time. 1st time It lasted a week. The second time The new gasket lasted 3 months. The third time, I replaced with the 4mm thick gasket from Ford, and it lasted 2 days before it started pouring back into the oil... what else could cause this? Im lost . Thanks for the help if anyone even knows whats going on here.

ps. If the Lower Intake isnt the problem, Why does replacing it at least have some effect for a couple days to a few months before blowing out again?
