1997 F250. 7.3 cooling system pressurizing BAD!

The other day I was driving my truck home from work when I noticed it starting to run warm and pulled over and noticed the cooling tank was ballooned out and was leaking. I let truck cool off and started it back up and had the cap off the coolent tank and watched it push a buch of air out of it for about a second then stop about 10 seconds later it does it again. Was wondering if someone else ha had this problem out of their truck? Was thinking maybe head gaskets or a cracked injector sleeve... The mods to the truck are stage 1s, T500 HPOP,banks intercooler kit, TS 6 position chip with Cale's tunes, water methkit and 5" straight pipe with 3" down pipe. Trck is making around 30lbs of boost. Any info given will be super helpful because I'm a long ways from home working and just want to make sure I replace the right part.

1997 F250 7.3 4x4 5spd, 4" BDS lift , Dana 60 front end, 3" down pipe, 5" exhaust, T500 HPOP, TS 6 position chip with Cale tunes, Banks Intercooler kit, Stage 1's, AEM cold air Intake, water meth.
2000 F350 7.3 4X4 6" procomp lift, Tyrant trans, 238/100s,T500 hpop, H2E turbo, Cale's tunes, 5" exhaust.
2004 F250 6.0 4X4 leveling kit, 4" exhaust, billet converter, sct live wire with Cale's tunes, arp studs, air raid intake,sinister intake elbow, sinister oil and coolant filters.

Sounds like a blown head gasket. Outside chance it's a thermostat.
