Default Puking degas bottle...

I have a 08F450 with a brand new long block with studs. I have 480 miles on this install and it's puking coolant out the degas under a load...new water pump, new oil cooler, everything new. I'm gonna take it back to the shop in the morning but could it be head gaskets with a brand new studded long block??

They were new as of 7 months ago, but they didn't replace them when they did the engine.

Aftermarket cap didn't fix it, but I have a Ford cap coming today. Did a exhaust test on the coolant and it showed no exhaust gas present. Could the fuel cooler system have a bad cap also? It's just wet on top of all that area when I pop the hood

if the shop didnt check the block for flatness and have the heads decked, you could very well have blown headgaskets again...studs or no studs.
