That is the CAC. A CAC leak would likely not cause that high and rapid of overheating. Loss of power and boost is more likely. Is the radiator in bad shape? Coolant was ok?

You found the seals!

Pretty sure you can do an in-frame on a Wanderlodge with a Detroit.

I would expect to pay $2k to do the valve cover gaskets. Isn't it only two bolts on each side?
