puking only on srl

so about a week ago I randomly noticed my truck puking decided to switch to elc did that still puked even if I babied it or beat the crap outa it.seemed like one day it would puke the next day it wouldn't. put the truck back on the stock tune nothing didnt puke a thing. even went to get my bobcat in pa (12,000) at least and had my quad in the bed fine the whole time put the tune back in and it started to do it again confused like hell running fine no smoke codes nothing. and I don't have a moniter scan gauge crapped out any thoughts?? only thing I can think maybe there's something in the srl thts making it puke? or boil my coolant

The tune advances the timing and raises the cylinder pressure too, odds are either the head gaskets or egr cooler is leaking.
I would change the cap first if you still have the cap with the white sticker on it they are junk and they all fail. Should be yellow and orange writing on it if it's the newer updated one from Ford.
A pressure gauge is best to see if combustion gasses are entering the cooling system.

my cap is still a white and black one so I need the updated one. last time I pulled my egr valve it was all dry soot not gooey or steam cleaned and my eot and ect were never 15* apart about 2 months ago when my scan gauge was still working. and I wasn't eating any coolant either on stock

How is your heater doing? is it making heat at idle, a common trait of head gaskets is no heat at idle.
Put a pressure gauge on the cooling system and give it wot inputs if it spikes in pressure there is a problem if not your good. Pressure should be around 9-11 psi.

It's very possible that your cap is the problem, the one with the white sticker on it is just plain garbage. The spring in it is very small and they all fail, the newer cap has a much bigger thermal spring and will hold up to 16 psi and more importantly do it for years. Put a new one on whether it's the new oem or a quality USA made one and see how you do, again if you have the original cap it's probably your problem.
