oil cooler question

hi there i have a question for you. If you have a plugged oil cooler will you blow anti freeze out of the degas bottle???? I can drive my truck around for hrs on end but as soon as i stomp on it it pucks out of the degas bottle and the heat will blow cool. New rad cap and head gaskets where done 5000 km ago. My temp if i drive normal will be around 188 to 192 but if i step on it it will go right up to 200 and then puke out of the degas bottle. Would an oil cooler do this and is there a wy to check if it is plugged???? I read another ad by eclipsegt and he is having the same kind of issue as me. ANYONE ??????? I dont have the egr delete would this effect it. I also find my turbo will spool up and down when i keep it at a stead rpm and on a flat road

yes blowing out the degas bottle is one symptom of a oil cooler/egr problem
