EGR Cooler Deleted-Degas bottle

I have my EGR cooler deleted and noticed a little bit of coolant on my degas bottle. Have you guys seen that before and if so is that HG?

Clean off your bottle, make sure your coolant level is good and keep an eye out to watch for signs of the bottle releasing pressure and puking coolant. You will be able to tell and in my case I could hear the pressure being released. Also with the warmer weather, you will smell your coolant while sitting at stoplights with the windows down. If you puke again, it is head gasket time.

Hi not to steal the thread but. I also just did egr cooler delet and oil cooler replace flushed cooling system and used elc coolant. and sinister coolant filter. Drove truck for two weeks put about 600 miles on it, Ran fine no coolant loss no puking, I think i have the coolant level correct, after driving the truck, and shutting down would check coolant level. and would be just a little bit above min line on degase bottle I would guess 1/8 in trying to park in same place every night. last night put a tune in a low one drove truck drove great didn't really even get into it. letting out at about 20 lbs of boost, anyway looked under the hood and seen some coolant shot out of degas. Haven't had any oil in coolant or anything and truck never lost any in the two weeks of driving in stock.
I have heard from some other post that i need to lower coolant level in degas when I am going to run a tune. Is this true?
