to be honest, not really. you could test for combustion gases in the coolant but most wouldn't have the equipment (I've never seen it)
when you think about it there are only a few things that could cause the cooling system to overpressurize but only under load. when you rule the other things out (egr cooler or overheating) then there's nothing left
not to mention the obvious headgasket issue that already exists, it's a pretty straight forward diagnosis
ALSO! first and foremost, make sure you are not overboosting, you should not make over 28psi at any time on the stock tune. remember the 6.0 is loaded hot from the factory, any extra cylinder pressures aren't going to help anything
