Yet another problem....

Ok here we go. I have owned my 06 F350 6.0 tow boss for exactly a year. In this year she has been through 2 turbos, 2 oil coolers, a torn seal on a dummy plug and a leaking turbo oil supply tube. Now as my wife drove it home the ect's jumped to 220 with oil matching. The fan kicked in also a burning elec smell from engine compartment. No degas bottle puking but a lot of pressure in the system. This was over an hour highway drive at 65. The degas bottle is filling up not losing coolant. Due to pressure coolant is dripping slightly from lower hose (could barely squeeze the hose lower or upper. Has coolant filter and egr & egr cooler delete. Been flushed over 20 times total and switched to cat coolant. Also did complete dummy stand pipe replace with new v\cover gaskets updated drain and feed tubes for the turbo.
Did I just manage to join the blown head gasket group?
If not what are yalls thoughts.
I swear my truck was built on friday...

as a follow up. The degas bottle is just getting filled more and more. Relieved the pressure in the system after warm ran more and it built little to no pressure in the upper and lower hoses. Maybe bad water pump. What would cause the coolant to get pushed back into the degas bottle almost filling it?

Don't rule out a thermostat . They will do weird things when there going south .
Use a Ford / Motorcraft stat ONLY. Make sure the rad isn't plugging also , this will be harder to prove once it's out.

Could be silly things such as a thermostat or maybe even a bad cap thats letting the gas and coolant escape to soon.

Hopefully not a HeadGasket but ideally you would get a pressure gauge and do a test like this.
