ford says 15 degree differental max between eot and ect, I almost always see 21-22 psi or more when head gaskets are blown. are you having any problems to cause you some concern?

I don't think the egr being blocked off has anything to do with it. What level is your coolant in the degas bottle? The min line is actually the new max line. I had the same problem when I tuned my truck and innovative told me to lower the coolant level. I too have my egr cooler blocked off and valve welded shut which should actually keep the coolant a little cooler. So to me there statement about that makes no sense. Mine hasnt puked since i lowered the level. Also, replace the cap at the same time. very inexpensive.
