How full are you keeping your coolant? I run mine pretty low on the degas tank

You going by the minimum level on the tank or does yours have an updated sticker? I would only use a Ford OEM cap.

If u run elc it's supposed to be kept at the "lowest" full mark. Make u a bubble tester and see if you have air in the coolant side that will tell u if u have boost bleeding over from HGs. Which will be HGs may just have been overfill

There's several ways I think bullet proof makes one. Look on YouTube. It's got to be under a load where your boost is pumping the most. There are several write ups on here and the net.
