Pretty sure I need headgaskets... Best place for parts?

So I just started working my 08 6.4 hard. Im not sure about its life before 171,000 miles but it did still have its dpf when I got it. Now I have egr's deleted, dpf deleted, mini maxx tuner. tune usually stays on 50hp. was just hauling 18k pounds up and down Kentucky hills and coolant started puking out my degas bottle. tsb was performed that has the top port of the degas bottle plugged.

From everything I have read I need to replaced my head gaskets and stud the engine. On a side note I think I need rocker arms and bridges... just saw the video on the popping noise thru the intake and I never thought anything of it.

I was a mechanic for 9 years and have a friends shop I can do this in this weekend, I just need some opinions on where I can find a full bulletproof kit or head gasket and stud kit for the 6.4.
