What radiator cap do you normally run on a LS turbo set up, did head gaskets because I had some pressure in coolant system and would push coolant under boost, did a bad job of troubleshooting after replacing head gaskets and studs still has the problem it appears to be coming from radiator cap area.

I just used what ever was handy, 14-16 lbs I guess-it should be going in your overflow as opposed to coming out the cap. Some of those alumn. rads. have a thicker area where the cap seals, you have to really push and twist.

I have run my 16lb cap for four years without issue. Motor see's 23.5# of boost when at the track. Over 100 passes to date. Rad caps are like everything else, buy cheap china, get junk. Put a name brand good quality cap on it. The quality of the rad could come into question as well.
