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....
