Coolant puking under load oil cooler or head??

I have an 05 f350 srw had oil in my coolant about a year ago took it to local mechanic had egr delete and new oil cooler installed got the truck back and was told he only put water and simple green in the cooling system to finish flushing the system so I flushed a few times then filled back up with elc haven't had any problems till now when the trucks under a load trailer or no trailer it pukes Coolant, coolant temp stays under 200* but oil temp usually stays 15*-20* higher until the load is off the engine, no oil in coolant, no coolant in oil, no power loss, white smoke high temps, just pukes.. Any one have any ideas I have stock head gasket & studs edge tuner stays on economy mode with display for gauges I'm thinking its head gasket and or oil cooler any ideas on how to see I plan on putting arp studs, oem head gasket and oem oil cooler if its the head, just curious if anyone else has seen these symptoms

Get your friggin check book out and hand it to the guy working on your truck. I loved my 6.0. Had three of them until the 3rd bit me in my a%^ for the second time. So what did I do? I go and purchase a new one....Lol...Good luck brother. Awesome trucks when they are running right. I still wouldn't buy a Dodge or Chevy. As long as Ford functions without my tax $'s I will continnue to support them. Oh, I think its the heads gaskets. I had the same problem coming back from a trip with a load. Can you smell coolant through your air conditioner vents when the air is on?

What are your deltas unloaded? A clogged oil cooler can cause slight puking SOMETIMES, but I'd bet its head gaskets failing. Pull it apart, stud it, put a new oil cooler in, and be done with it.

It's the same unloaded if I start up a hill and have over 50% load on the engine it'll puke a little can't smell coolant.. Can take the rad cap off with eng hot and there's no pressure behind it but only time I lose coolant is by puking.. also passed the pressure test I made.. Ill be doing all the work myself but dang um parts are so expensive!! Any suggestions on where I can buy a complete stud/head gasket kit? Or would I be better off buying individual?

I've bought 2 caps in the past year one from napa, one from o'reilly's and I can't say I really liked either cap they were both different napas didn't feel like it was sealed off before it clicked tight and o'reilly's didn't click torque at all

No power loss at all I'm flushing the system out, installing new cap, and changing the oil today to see if it helps any I plan on changing the head gasket and studs as soon as I can afford to but it's looking like it'll be sooner than I expected
