Default leaky 6.0 degas bottle

ok i put my extreme tune in last night and wow!! ... but i have water blowing out the degas, i thought i blew the head gaskets again, but i did the test to check for exhaust gas in the degas bottle and nothing, i checked the oil temp and water temp, they seem to be staying the same. i replaced the degas cap. i do have the radiator from the 5.4 still in the truck, but i dont seem to have any overheating problems. could this be a water pump problem making me boil over? any ideas????

Not to ask a stupid question, but Do you have the newer updated degas bottle with the lower full mark? I have seen them just overfilled a little bit and puke during hard loads
