Coolant puking after HG job

So I did a HG job and put in new (used) heads from a machine shop. Got 20 miles into it and I'm puking coolant out the degas and EGT climb rapidly to 1000*.

Never have had this issue before until now. I'm looking for possible solutions...

Thermostat done 10000 miles ago
20 miles on HG & heads
300 miles on rebuilt turbo
EGR cooler deleted 10000 miles ago

Oh, and I put a used radiator in when doing the HG job. Old one was leaking.

He asked what gaskets were used. The black onyx were found to have a high failure rate and are no longer recomended.

Were the heads checked for warpage and trueness?

The gaskets were ford. The heads were bought from a machine shop. According to them they were pressure checked and decked.
