Didn't you do the heads on that one? Check the bolts on the driver side on the intake and see if one backed off on you.

A head gasket usually don't blow to the outside on a water passage.

I bet it is something simple, do you have one of those tools that pressurizes the radiator? I bet you could hear it with the engine off.

I replaced the heads about 6 months after I purchased it, about 6 years ago. Yes I have a cooling system pressure tester.
