Headgaskets?

I finally got around to installing my pressure gauge. I've noticed a very light haze of white when I start it Just for a sex. I havnt had any puking yet. But I keep my coolant just under the min line. Maybe that's why. Besides the fact I don't hold it wot.

Here's my gauge after 6 miles of driving on the highway at 70
Ect was 188 the whole time. And I never went over 15lbs of boost.
I have no idea if I am loosing coolant. I just changed my coolant filter and added a little elc so it's hard to tell. I have 4k left of my warranty left. The stealership will not be touching my truck. C&C diesel will be. (not that you know who they are) but they are great shop, machine everything in house. A few of my buddy have had their 6.0's done there. There's a couple if org members that have used them as well.

I was wondering how dealers ect.. Confirm the hg are blown. Compression tests ect....

Here's the pic.



What do y'all think?

A HG failure shows up quickly a quick rise in pressure until cap vents .

A normal over heat condition will be a slow gradual rise in pressure

What I see there is normal operation.

That shows 15 psi in 7 miles. 16 is when it pukes. Doesn't that seem a bit high? The motor wasn't even warm yet

Normal operateing pressure is 12 to 15* but even in a perfect system you will get momentary spikes that will open the vent , that is what it is there for.

As I previously stated if it was a head it could rise to max out the gauge in a minute if the leak was big enough, remember you have 400 psi cylinder compression gas available to leak out.

Now Im done with this.

Check out my video on youtube of my truck. You see that the PSI guage I'm using has a range on it from 0-30 PSI. This is how I found out my truck had bad head gaskets on it.

I'd say given the circumstances you're due for gaskets. Coolant venting out of the degas is pretty cut and dry especially considering you're already running a delete.
