comment How to prevent a car from boosting?
The overboost code might not be want you want; depending on how the ECU handles that you might end up with fuel cuts, which isn't going to make the car more drivable. If you can set the boost with some sort of scan tool that's probably your best bet to lower it, but you'll still run into the limit set by the spring in the wastegate.

comment Using DOT4+ in clutch/brakes when DOT3 is recommended?
Just to add to the confusion, DOT 5.1 is glycol based and thus can be used in place of DOT 3/4, but DOT 5 isn't and can't.

comment What can cause a vehicle to run hot, but not overheat?
I've updated the answer, short version is you might need a radiator or you might be able to flush out the blockages, but I wouldn't put money on the latter.

@Earlz, That would be another indicator that the radiator isn't providing the necessary cooling capacity - you're basically using the heat exchanger of the heater as an additional radiator. If you hadn't mentioned that the radiator was new(ish), the symptoms would look like a partially blocked radiator.

Under which circumstances does the temperature go up to 225 while driving? What sort of speeds?
