Wait.....so you didn't check the degas bottle but it sprayed out of the degas bottle? I'm confused.

You're good bud. I just didn't understand the post.

I'd say it's a safe bet that you're head bolts probably stretched, letting the heads lift and compromise your head gaskets. It's not 100% for sure that is the issue but the probability that you're going to need to do studs and new gaskets is pretty high.

I'd invest in some ARP head studs.

I'm not sure off the top of my head. I want to say $3500 or so for parts and labor. Typically depends on the shop and labor rate. You definitely don't want to cheap out and let someone touch your truck that has no clue what they're doing. Tune down and save if you need to so you can wait until you can spend the money having it done right.
