New ARP studs & Gaskets

I just had a set of ARP studs, ford Gaskets, oil cooler , thermosat, water pump, LP oil pump gears, FPS (blue) installed and had the turbo cleaned on my 6.0. Before the work it was running 164 coolant and 198 engine oil temps, my degas bottle was building presure to 16psi real quick and puking with an outsidde air temp of 60/70 and running 55 mph. I'm picking my truck up tonight from the shop, it's around 50.60 outside what should I except to see for the coolant and oil temp. and the PSI's at the degas bottle. Is there anything else I can do to confirm all issues have been resolved ? My turbo boost never when over 17 before what is normal for the 6.0 when mash'n on it ?

I know that typically the EOT is around 185-190 and the ECT should be pretty close to the same. You do not want to have a much of a different between the 2. Basic rule is if you are 15* difference between ECT and EOT then either your oil cooler or your egr cooler is clogged.

My truck usually is around 185 for the EOT and my ECT is typically around 175-185. Normally the delta between EOT and ECT on mine is no more than about 8*.

When I mash down on mine, I have seen mine get up to 27 psi on the turbo.

Your thermostat is bad! ECT should be AT LEAST 188-190

Good to know. I will replace it and hopefully my delta will decrease.

In this posts everything was looking good but now you have a 33* delta so yea you still got problems either it was a poor head job or your haveing othe over heat issues as well. EGR cooler or oil cooler, plugged radiator stuck thermostat, bad water pump. I say this because your coolant temps made a bigger increase than your oil temps.

Could you clarify whether you had a catastofic overheat and headgasket failure or all this work was done for upgrade purposes.
Head gasket failures are useually the result of an overheat condition and not the cause.
Rereading your post I am not shure now. Advice would be slightly different depending on the situation.
