I've been getting coolant odors from the engine when ever I get the engine temp up around 200 (lately it wont get passed 170 since temps are below 40). I ran a pressure test and it held 17 lbs for at least five mins and was unable to see any signs of coolant leaking from the hoses. The coolant level in the resevior tank has dropped about a half inch in about 20K (the truck has 105K).

I see alot of head gasket talk out here and was wondering if this is an indication that I might be heading in that direction?

This really bothers me after spending alot of $$ for a SC Stage IV.

Did you check the coolant hose to the turbo? Mine was dripping. See here

Appreciate the tip, I realized i also put the wrong operating temps that I see in my haste. She normaly runs at 185 and the coolant odor is only when she gets up to 210.
