Got a tune now its puking!

Got a tune from Vivian at quick tricks, and all i can say is holy s*** this thing hauls. Extremely impressed by the power and perfect driveability, scared some bystanders/my friend and possibly myself the first time i got an 8k pound truck sideways across three lanes on a u-turn lol. I just noticed today after popping my hood though that looks like the degas bottle is puking some coolant out of the cap. Delta is max 9* so cooler shouldnt be clogged, why else would it be puking?

Hey had to have some fun the first couple of days haha. Good thing I already had an appointment scheduled with the stealership tomorrow at 7. She's getting head studs/egr delete/new oil cooler/dummy plugs/stand pipe/STC fitting and 6.4 banjos put in. Should be good to go after that.

Damn less than a week with the tuner and head gaskets went I didn't think I was driving that crazy

I put Eric's street tune on my truck and it started puking lightly by the 3rd day. I bought this truck KNOWING that i was going to stud it, but I didn't think it would happen so quickly. If it isn't puking bad you can still drive it lightly for quite some time. I took the tune off my truck and it stopped puking for quite some time while I gathered parts. I would put in ARP head studs, delete the EGR, replace the oil cooler, and update the STC fitting in your High Pressure Oil Pump at the bare minimum. This can all be done in your driveway with ease. I would suggest removing the front clip of the truck to make everything more accessible.
