Coolant loss but only so much??

I have a 2005 6.0 with 70,000 miles sct tuner, 4'' turbo back exhaust, true flow xdi itake. i have had coolant purge out of the coolant bottle but only go down 3/4 in below original min mark. still have some coming out but next to nothing, if i baby the truck and dont get it real hot it wont happen. i dodnt know if it is headgasket blowby when i put 30lbs of boost thru it, or if it is flash heating coolant(bad egr cooler) in the egr cooler. i would appreciate any help. thanks.

I dunno .... unfourtunately I am not very educated when it comes to diesels, and our motor especially. what I know I have picked up from this site (PLUG). I do not have the delete as of yet. I have been contemplating getting the block off, as it seems not so complicated or involved as taking apart the top of the motor to install the delete kit. I do have Innovative tunes and I think the xtremes close the egr... isn't that good enough to keep it from superheating or whatever

to stop the egr from opening at all i havr heard that you need to block it off, it will still be forced open under high boost conditions. all the program does is stop the opening and closing of the egr valve, but the heat and coolant are still going threw the egr cooler pipe. the program just closes the last stage of the system. by the way how much did i t cost you to arp stud? i am looking to stud and egr block off my truck with in the year.

Is it Ok on the 04 to put just the egr block plate or do you need to delete the cooler too

I was lucky enough to have it done under a warranty... I just paid for the studs

i dont know what the diffrences are in 03-04 to 05-07 but i have heard they differ a little. as far as the egr block plate, i have no idea. i have a 05 f250 fx4 manual trans, and when i do the egr delete i am going to buy a new up pipe or cut and weld mine, and re-route coolant. i want to totaly delete the egr cooler (no cooler no problems). i also will get custome tunes with no egr. if there are any techs that could chime in on any thread would be great.

I just spoke with a guy from elite in CA and he told me the up-pipes are different, and on the 03-04 "as long as you don't stay in it all the time, (dragging, slay pulling, etc.) it would be fine to use just a plate for 2-3 years, but you eventually need to delete the cooler also."
