Blackstone test came back

Hey all,
Ill try to make this short. Ive been thinking I have a bad headgasket for some time now. I was getting about 18-19psi in my degas bottle and it was alittle wet in my intake. I had a new oil cooler and a welded off egr cooler installed a few months ago. Im still getting 18-19psi in my bottle after the egr delete. So this makes me think my HG is compromised some. Heres the thing tho, My bottle has never puked and I never have to add coolant.
So I got my results from blackstone and they say there isnt any coolant in my oil and they think my gaskets are ok. Is it possible to still have a bad HG and not get coolant in my oil? Also if my gaskets were ok then why the 19psi in my bottle?
To be honest I still think my gaskets are bad but not to bad yet. Or maybe I have a cracked head.. What do you guys think?

Here is my oil results..my trk info is in the results also.

Thanks, Shark

I would say that since you don't have evidence of head gaskets (neither anecdotal through your observations nor through evidence in your UOA), that your blocked off EGR cooler is somehow leaking by.

In the 6.0L, head gasket leaks will practically never (in fact I have never seen or heard of it) put water in the oil. The combustion gasses push into the coolant.

You may test for combustion gas in the coolant reservoir with this:

Ya I guess I should do this test..Thanks for the link.
I should check under my egr valve to see if there is any moister there since the delete was done. I bet its ok and my HG are leaking some gasses though. I will check anyways this weekend.
