Coolent leak

I have a 08 250 am whenever I have my coolant bottle full to the line and I get to high boost and start to play on the throttle I will blow coolant out of the top drivers side of the motor. But when I leave it a inch under the cold fill line I can really get on it and never lose a drop. Does anyone have any ideas

did you have the tsb performed where the venture is installed on the coolant hose to the degas bottle and the top port is capped off?

No everything is all stock. I was thinking it maybe the cap

check your degas bottle and make sure it doesn't have a port coming out above the fill line. cap could be bad, stant makes a good replacement. if its puking coolant from over pressurizing, you could be looking at cracked egr cooler or head gaskets... im getting ready to replace my head gaskets and stud the engine... I puke 1/2 gallon of coolant when im towing thru hills in 200 miles

Well it's blown head gaskets. Does any one know what the best after market head studs are and should I go after market gaskets to?
