lifted heads again

well i think i lifted the heads again. after making a couple of passes a friend in a chase truck following he noticed something leaking coming from under the truck (driver side) and i knew right away its coming from the degas bottle. in feb 09 with 64,000 miles i took it into ford for the same problem. a buddy is a diesel tech there and did the work, found out it was head gaskets and took on the task of pulling the cab and changing them out. i purchased some arp headstuds and had him install those instead of the factory bolts. also while i was there i took the egr pipe and had it welded. new ford headgaskets, arp studs , egr pipe welded, new icp sensor, degas bottle, cap, oil cooler, etc. all done under warranty. except the deductable and a fancy ford focus to drive for a week and a half. so sat. nite i go to the local meet and a tundra on the bottle started runnin his mouth and wanted to run. ok then lets go. but i cant launch in 4wd his request BOOOOO but i did it anyway. dig race tryin to pedal first. won bye 6 trucks. lil roll race from a 10 punch won bye 4 trucks. at the end of the roll race is when my friend noticed the leak. drove the truck back out of mexico and parked it let it run a bit while poppin the hood to notice NO coolant in the degas bottle. ******. shut it down and added water. truck still runs fine. and is only leaking when im on it for awhile. only mods that are different between now and back in feb. is a sct compared to the superchips i had before. now im outa factory warranty but i do have a extended warranty. altho now that i think about it. im still under the 12month 12k miles since last repair. ok end of rant. oh and i just rolled over 70k miles

Maybe try another degas bottle cap first? That's about the cheapest place to start eliminating. AFIK the Powerstroke has a 100k warranty also. I'd be surprised if properly installed ARP's stretched under the tunes commonly run on this board. I've read from several of the veteran mechanics on here too that studs don't automatically guarantee an end to puking either so it may not be your heads, on the other hand it could be that the heads weren't flat to begin with. ARP's can't fix that. If I were you I would be curious as to how many thou's your heads were within when they did the repairs the last time.

well i figured tundra runs low 15's stock and a 100shot should put him where im at. but alas no. and no it wasnt worth it. but it would have happend either way. i just got off the phone with dynamic diesels or something from joseph texas and thats what he said lately they have been finding heads to be cracked at the valve seat and various other places. the tune is just extreme race from idp. i will fix it i guess its off to bigger better parts. may as well do fuel, injectors, turbo while im at it
