95 mustang gt overheating before and after rebuild!

Wanna see if I can get some help diagnosing my mustang that keeps overheating! The engine was recently rebuilt cause it had quite a few miles on it and was going to add a cam and some other extras but now after the rebuild its still overheating.

On you're dash is the coolant gauge going up or staying in the middle?

The gauge does go up and when I start the car with the cap off it looks foamy!

If you have a fresh mixture of water and anti-freeze and it's foamy maybe you have a combustion leak (cylinder head gasket)into the cooling system. Even the best people make mistakes sometimes, a warped deck or head that was overlooked in the rebuilt ...

A head problem is exactly what I told the machine shop I thought was wrong with it cause it kinda seems to me that the coolant smells like exhaust! When the machine shop provided me the motor first time around the car was overheating super fast like the head gasket was on backwards so I took out the motor again and they went through the motor again and still overheating!! I asked the owner of the machine shop if he had pressure checked the heads and he said no.
