What's the possible issue?

2006 f-350 with 6.0l was driven 550 miles on the highway and took 3 gallons of water in. We done a radiator pressure test to check for external leaks. No leaks found. We then released the pressure and let the truck run a while. If the gauge is accurate it got to 20 PSI. Under quick throttle it would bump 21 PSI. What may be the issue or what are some further diagnostics I can do? It was also puking some under quick acceleration while driving.

It's not blowing any white smoke. Motor runs great, just drinking water.

Most likely from the puking when going down the road. Losing that much coolant with no signs of it in the exhaust and no visible leaks, would lead me back to the excessive puking.

Typical coolant pressure should be around 6 - 10 psi.

What would cause the excessive puking and pressure?

Like the previous post reply, its looks like a failed EGR Cooler or headgaskets. Pull your EGR valve and see if its wet on the valve. That will tell if its the EGR Cooler. If its dry, then its most like head gaskets.

I have heard of heater cores leaking, check there too. But with the excessive puking and coolant pressure I would put my money on headgaskets.

Where is the EGR valve located?
