I recently changed out the oil about 2 weeks ago and now my engine was bone dry. I checked everywhere for an oil leak, had a couple of my friend's look for it as well, nothing, bone dry. I went to see if it was burning the oil and that was negative. Where did all the oil go, this has never happened before.

Check your coolant reservoir, make sure your oil isn't mixing with your coolant via a leak in your oil cooler. Happened to me and if you don't catch it soon enough it can turn into a disastrous sticky mess.

I am giong to assume your saying bone dry when it doesnt show up on the Dip stick or your saying the outside of your enigine is dry? or we would be talking about where you can get a new engine.

How many miles are we talking about in 2 weeks?
Your oil might be leaking though your turbo, but you should see some smoke if you rev it up a little, This is if your anti-freeze doesnt look like a milk shake

I thought a "blown" oil cooler lead to missing coolant not the other way around?

the coolant in our car cools the oil in the cooler so if there is a leak they r goin to mix.
