The leaking is on top of the cylinder head. It comes through by a head stud, I checked that :) Not sure how the leakage of a manifold gasket would end up there? But now I'm open for just about any explanation, because if the gasket had a tear on it it would for sure let out the coolant.
You not supplying enough detail will get you an answer like that. Ill let you figure it out.

odds are the bottom of the stud is in a coolant jacket and needs new teflon sealant to stop the coolant from going up the stud.

Yes, I am, I saw it (and heard it) fizzling from the nut nearest the boost bottle.

It's ordered. I just cant understand how the oil and gas gets past the gasket, but not the coolant, oh well we will see.
