'05 F-250 with coolant puddle underneath

I am afraid that I might have blown a HG this weekend. The truck still runs fine but there is a growing puddle of water/coolant under the pasenger side. I opened the hood and it looks like the degas bottle is puking. The water seems to be leaking from a little square block on the back of the engine block right under the exhaust manifold at about 60 drops per minute.

If it is the HG's then I will go ahead and do an oilcooler replacement and EGR delete along with ARP studs.

Can anybody think of anything it would be except a blown HG?
