If you are puking its because your oil cooler is clogged. You need to rebuild that as well. While you're at it flush the cooling system with Restore to clean out the silicate buildup from the Ford Gold coolant that clogged your oil cooler and switch to an ELC coolant so it doesn't happen again.

coolant flush

Do you have to use VC-9 and Restore or just one or the other?

VC-9 is for cleaning scale and iron removal. Restore is specifically for cleaning up silicate residue. If you are low mileage you can probably just do the Restore. If you are higher mileage I would do both.

it might be headgaskets,(which isnt any better) so it doesnt mean for sure its the oil cooler plugged ive never seen high oil temps or high ECT temps and mine has puked twice. could be overfilled, could be bad cap, could be pushing cylinder pressure into coolant causing the over pressure of the coolant.

If you do work on the exhaust, make sure you soak the bolts!

Do you know what your temp deltas are? That would help.
