Puked!

My truck pucked a little bit for the first time couple day's ago. It was the first time that I was running the truck on the 345 tune with egr off, I did a quick take off in 4 hi, not building boost, just floored it, and only up to the 5th gear, no lockup. I stop not to long after that and saw the smoke cumming out of the hood, it was from the degas bottle. Can it be my egr cooler that fail from the pressure or it can only be the heads?? Is there a way to check it?? And could it be an air pocket in the system? I got #2 injector changed couple day's ago, just wondering?

It is possible its the egr cooler but my guess would be head gaskets.

Would a pressure test show a leaking head gasket?

Just an observation but I have been noticing lately that a few of the head gasket leak threads have been on the 345 tune. I too had a leak and had been running the 345 tune for about a month. I didnt have any puking but stubbled upon some signs of coolant in the turbo exhaust piping while installing some upgrades. Went with arp studs

might as well do head gasket, studs and push rods. Kinda sucks that ya have to dump that kinda money in it but at least it will be bullet proof
