08 6.4 coolant smell in cab

I have a 08 6.4 with 75k on it ,Iam getting some coolant smell in the cab ,if you drive it for about an hour at highway speeds ,not loaded ,you get the odor sometimes, I have owned the truck for the last 5k , my first Diesel ,have not seen any coolant loss ,it is stock ,it has been pulled some I assume it has the gooseneck in it . The truck runs great besides the turbo lag and the 15mpg

Mine does this also but I have a coolant leak up front near the lower portion of the EGR cooler. They can't seem to fix it so I keep taking it back.

As for the turbo lag, just change out your intake and run the EPA approved K&N. That will smooth things right out. You're pretty much stuck with the fuel mileage. I get about 10 around town and maybe 15 on the highway.
