Quit puking after flush! Still teapot some!

So I bought a truck tht I was assuming needs the usual deletes and studs. Got it very cheap so I have plenty of room to play. I drove it a couple of time around the house but you couldnt do much because it was puking so bad. I mean if you revved it up in park it would puke sometimes. I did the restore and restore plus flush today. After I got thru with the second round of restore I made the block to circulate some clean water through it and I cant make it puke. I accelerated it hard, accelerated and quickly let off, and tried everything. I cant make it puke again. But it does still have the teapot sound when there is no load on the engine going down the road. I havent put distilled water in yet because I think I may flush again tomorrow or tonight.

History of the truck is the guy put regular green antifreeze in it and it stopped up the oil cooler. He had to replace it because it clogged up. He then replaced the oil cooler, radiator and did an egr delete, and flushed with some autozone flush and filled back with the Gold stuff. It started puking bad so he just sold it to me.

I still plan to do studs, gaskets, check the egr delete because he did it hisself, oil cooler, and all the good stuff while the cab is off.

So what is the deal, I thought it was having very bad HG issues, but now it seems alot better? It has me wondering?

You still have a bit of the tea kettle sound, so the biggest issue is still there. What may have happened is that a piece of junk was clogging a passage somewhere (or restricting it) and your flush cleared it out.
