Bump....any ideas guys? Just wondering what else to check. I think the only thing left is an air bubble. Is the only way to get rid of air, through the screw at the top of the radiator?

I re-connected the pre-cat sensors and left the post-cats disconnected. Everything is fine so I'll just leave it as-is for now. Not sure if it is worth the effort to replace them.

Not sure how there could be a leak. If the pressure is in the red zone...or high...wouldn't that mean there is no leak? Or do you mean there could be a leak and it still overpressures?
