I had to top mine up a couple times after my egr delete due to to coolant loss during the removal of the coolers. How much have you added?

If it is not leaking this just goes to show why it is so important to fill these motors with an airlift tool. That would prevent air pockets from forming and causing this kind of problem.

Keep tabs on how much total coolant you have put in. If you put in more than about 4.5 gal, than you have a leak somewhere still, or you are burning it. You mentioned you just did HG's and studs? Are they seated right? Do you notice any white smoke from the exhaust?
