puked after stud job

so i recently got my truck studded heads were resurfaced and check out good. i had the shop do arp egr delete oil cooler and pretty much every gasket to do the job was replaced. the truck is a 2004 cc sb. i was running the x race tune that was built for a non studded truck because i havent ordered new tunes yet. the problem is i was racing a 240 sx or z or whatever they are and i was in to win it. but when i got home i checked under the hood and the degass bottle puked about a cup of coolant. its the first time it has done it since it was studded. i hit about 32 psi of boost and my oil temp hit about 198 my coolant was bout 194 and egts i didnt look. my edge cts wont record, record egt temps. my coolant is at the line on the sticker on my new degas bottle at operating temp. my question is did i blow these things again or does it have a little too much coolant in it? should i be worried. btw i have the awesome black onyx head gaskets LOL. and the truck was studded in january. sorry for the long post hope you guys can help!

Well it seems that your head gaskets are toast.

I assume that you have the factory turbo? If so you may want to check if the unison ring is stuck. 32 psi seems pretty high.

coolant could be over filled. When cold the level should be 1/4" BELOW the MINIMUM line

or you used black onyx/VR instead of using OEM gaskets.

Seems like its only a matter of time with BO. Maybe that time is three months.

lol you guys are hilarious... yea i was against the bo. hes like yea i run them on my 800hp cummins all day no problem. i guess the fords hate the bo/vr gaskets. i heard they were updated though is this true and second why do so many companies online offer them in their package deals if they are garbage. i bought the complete master solution kit from mkm. it was like 1850 bucks or something insane. ill check the coolant in the morning and keep you guys posted. and say i hit 32 psi are you really telling me even with studs this truck wont take 32 psi.? thats sad. that was my highest boost i hit and that was a few weeks ago im not sure i hit 32 tonight i was just erroringon the high side. i think it might just have a dab to much juice in it. or had lol.

Well im sure any studded truck can handle 32 psi, but I didn't think that a stock turbo could produce that much boost

The kits have BO gaskets bc they were all the rage a year ago. I had them, until they blew. Now I have OEM
