Same ole : white smoke~~~

Ordered Sinister EGR delete, tore down to install, found nasty coolant/soot goo most everywhere in the exhaust system EXCEPT the pass.side up-pipe and EGR cooler outlet. This tells me I've got a headgasket leaking on the drivers side bank. Would like outhers opinions... Picture of bone dry pass. up pipe.

flawed theory

After thinking it over in respect to the flow. My first thoughts posted here are incorrect. The pass. side up pipe is flowing exh. INTO the cooler! Donno what I was thinking that it was the cooler's outlet. So I'm going to yank the cooler and pressure test it & go from there. GEEZE just the possibility that it still is the EGR cooler ruptured and not the HG's is a weight lifted....

My EGR cooler crashed and my truck sat for bout 2 months. I installed the fully BulletProof kit and fired her up and idled for about 20 minutes. I revved her up to about 3000 and got steam. Damn it! Talked to some folks and they said maybe water in the exhaust. So I drove easy for about 20, then romped on it. More steam! Made some calls, $5300 for H.G. So I jumped in and drove the schmit out of it and after 15 minutes the steam was gone! Apperently a lot of water was in my exhaust.
3000 mi. of hard drivin and she's all good.

Not Looking good

Got the EGR cooler out, rigged up a way to pressure test the cooler. With 20 psi of refrigerant on the wet side, filled the exhaust side with water to check for bubbles, even jacked the pressure to 90 psi for a sec, NO BUBBLES So it looks like the heads are coming off. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui...775754240-1&zw
