fingers crossed indeed... I feel your coolant woes!

given that exhaust gas -> coolant is the likely HG failure method on the L-series it could be worth keeping an eye on the colour of your coolant.... if it starts to get dark and murky, it is probably the HG.....

I drove mine 10k miles with it compromised - so if it is, it is thankfully not "urgent" as long as you keep the coolant levels at the right points!

If you noticed that your engine is running louder/lumpier it could be the timing solenoid is failing, I know that can give the car too much advance and ultimately result in HGF even on standard tune without any mods....

I've ordered a new cap from DMGRS because coolant has been trying to escape. It happened going up a minor ish hill in 5th, temp shot up to 107c, heaters went cold. Got to a flat road, temp dropped, heaters came back.
My car is not liking any LOAD whatsoever so I thought I'll turn the boost down from 19psi. I've rotated the actuator 360 degrees, took it for a spin.
Auto Meter guage and elm327/Torque App both say high 18psi, once I got it to 19.2.
I'm going to knock it back again 180 degrees later and see how it goes.

However, this will be my last MOT on this car.
