Start with a new degas bottle cap, keep the level 1/4 inch below the "add" line when cold. Also, get a pressure gauge and install that in the line that returns to the degas bottle from the intake. It shouldn't go above 16psi.

In this instance, I wouldn't go aftermarket. I think the cap is about 30 bucks through Ford.
