[ That seems painless versus messing with the cap. thx ]
Raptor, it sounds like you really have everything covered. More a matter of money and time with the head gaskets. I'm looking forward to replacing my intake manifold, putting in a new oil cooler, blue spring and the little odds and ends. But I'm not going to do the heads myself for lack of time, space, skill, and proper tools.
If you have it in the shop that might be a different story, especially if you push it or have a tuner.
These are work trucks and I've blown all kinds of heads on gassers. It's always a real mess and obvious. Seems like it's a bit different on these, but I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that the little coolant burps I see once in a blue moon are just the EGR and heat issues. My EOT and ECT always look good.
When I have had wet white smoke, it was always on very cold days, just the first 5-10 min and having to gun it to get out from being buried by the plow.
