Head gaskets or what?

Alright, I don't post much but I'm pretty sure I've read every post on here. I feel smarter for this. Thanks.
Now here's the problem. Truck's an 06 all stock except for cat-delete. Second turbo, first one went at like 6,000 miles, it wasn't a common 6.0 problem. Now at 65,000 miles I'm having my second problem. Only when the truck is warm anything over like 20ish pounds of boost I'm getting a shhhhhhh sound coming from the driverside area. Sounds kinda like someone is blowing a air hose next to my window. So My first thought was one of my blue charge boots, it's not. Second I thought maybe an exhaust leak, Nope. Now the only thing i could think of is either head gaskets or egr cooler. I just pulled the egr a couple hundred miles ago to clean it like I do every 15,000. So I pulled it again the egr was clean and dry, but in the intake it was alittle moist bit I think it was just moisture not coolant or oil.
What do you guys think? It's going to the dealer regardless. If it's heads do you think I should do studs? When the truck is out of warranty I'm gonna go to a half ton for a work truck and lift and start moddin this one.

head studs are always good. and is there a crack in your up pipes? i dont think that this is a head gasket thing. i would check all exhaust and turbo plumbing.

Checked all visual plumbing All of the exhaust up-pipes too. The weird thing it only does its when warm. Which makes me think heads cause maybe its only enough to push air into the cooling system then out the degas bottle.

Update.... Truck went to the dealer and have no clue. They hear the noise and also say that it's not normal. They checked everything. There's no codes, everything is normal. Now I cleaned the egr a couple weeks ago and put new washers and a gasket on it. Could I have screwed something up I've done it many times before.


I don't know.

Ok got the truck back from the dealer. They said there's a problem but we don't know what it is so keep driving it until it blows up. Then come back. So as soon as I get home I start tearing everythng apart cause I'll be damned if I gotta listen to this sound forever. so I see a little oil on the bottom of the air filter dripping up. Right above the plastic charge tube flex joint. but there's no oil or wet spot. So i start moving the flex joint and wallah theres the hole. there's a little crack in the flex joint.

So now I'm thinkin I should apply for a job at this dealer as a diesel tech just kiddin

Thats tooo funny, im glad that you found out what the problem is. make sure you tell the dealership and rub it in that their techs couldnt figure it out and a driveway mechanic did.
