I checked my truck using a stopper with tubing installed in the degass bottle. Make sure pressure is off system(Critical). Remove Cap and install the stopper with the tube. Place the end of the tube in a bottle of water bigger the better. Start the engine. If you have bubbles you have a leak. Reach in and unplug the VGT and see if the bubble reduce/stop if they do it is most likely just your EGR Cooler. if not you likely also have a head gasket leak. Plug the VGT back in and see if the bubbles increase/start again. Remember to be extremly careful around a running engine. If you have someone to rev the engine a bit before you unplug the turbo it helps see a bigger differance. If no change is seen you likely only have a head gasket leak. But that doesn't lead to much coolant in the exhaust just white smoke.
Hope that helps
