Thumbs down oh no!!!! probable head gasket faliure?!?!?!?

Ok im cutting to the chase here, i was driving on HD300 wild tune and pushed it about 3/4 oof the pedal. The ebp didnt get above 60psi. I came home and something told me to pop the hood, i opened it any walla the coolant in the degas bottle was about to puke. I turned it off and it bubbled down back to normal where that hose connected to the egr . What the heck, i don't understand, i don't have fuel mods and turbomods. Now ya please help me!! I have replaced the bottle cap so i don't think it it. I think i might have the egr line hooked up wrong.

The video and pics my hand is where it was at. I went to normal in 30seconds

How is your coolant? You can test it! How about your heat, is it blowing hot? When the truck comes up to normal operating temperature what is your coolant level and is there circulation between the block and radiator?

Coolant was replaced about 5000 miles ago with cat elc 1 i run it on the cold line marked on the degas bottle. The heater blows fine.I have a coolant filter on so i suspect my coolant to be in check. All i know if this means that my head gaskets are done? Or that it was a wrong connection i made.

Come on guys really need help!!!

The connection is a t-feed and your set-up appears to be normal. I hope it's not a HG in your case!

No. My dad has a shop though that maybe we can use a backhoe. Ive seen people use it before. If not then idk. I have a question, its not throwing white smoke of acting funny but yet it almost puked . Also when a 6.4 does puke isnt it suspose to shoot it out?

Idk moneys stupid tight right now, ugh this sucks!!

It's not a precise thing, but you can set your main gauge on the mini to vacuum signal, fire the truck up (in that order) and watch the gauge.. if the gaskets are leaking, youll start with decent vacuum signal, and it will slowly but surely taper down to nothing while just idling.. don't let it high idle.. keep your foot on the brake of you have to.. you don't want the turbo fiddling with vacuum while trying this..
