Thumbs down 2008 f250 6.4 blowing coolant/dgas cap under load

2008 f-250 6.4L Spartan tuner/dashdaqxl

SO RECENTLY I HAVE HAD AN ISSUE WITH COOLANT BLOWING OUT OF MY RESERVOIR USUALLY UNDER LOAD GOING UPHILL. I BOUGHT THE TRUCK WITH A SPARTAN TUNER AND DASHDAQXL PROGRAMER. THIS IS MY FIRST DIESEL AND DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT RUNNING THESE THINGS. TOOK IT TO FORD AND THEY TOLD ME THEY NEED TO REPLACE EGR COOLERS AND HEAD GASKETS WHICH IS GOING TO COST ABOUT $5,500. THEY ALSO SAID I COULD HAVE CYLINDER DAMAGE (TYPICAL). MECHANIC SAID MY COOLANT PRESSURE WAS GOING UP TO 30LBS WHICH IS HIGH.

I REALLY NEED SOME ADVICE AS WHAT TO DO. SHOULD LET THEM FIX IT OR DO SOME TYPE OF EGR DELETE OR WELD SOME BLOCK OFF PLATES.

IF I DO THE EGR OR BLOCK PLATES WILL THIS CAUSE ANY ISSUES WITH PRESSURE BUILD UP?

PLEASE HELP! I AM NOW DEPLOYED AND THE WIFE IS STUCK AT HOME WITH THIS TRUCK.

(OUT OF WARRANTY) THANKS!
