Overboost is on a distinguished road
I took the drive this morning to validate the temps on the highway. Sure enough, dropped to 67C. As mentioned above the car sitting in traffic would hold at 88C so it looks like it is certainly a soft fail thermostat. I picked up a new thermostat and housing from the dealer and removed the fan and shroud and am just waiting on the engine to cool a little before dumping the coolant to replace it.
