I see. 24lb is quite high, although I'm still not sure where all the pressure is coming from - the pump just circulates the coolant around the engine, there shouldn't be an major obstruction...
But as you say, a 2300cfm fan should keep everything cool, no matter what pressure cap you use!
Have you tried a "water wetter" product in the coolant? I believe it can reduce coolant temperatures by 10-30°C.
Relax - there's still time... for you. I've still got to fit an engine and transmission, bleed clutch, fit brakes driveshafts threadlock setscrews adjust handbrake adjust gearlinkage bodge front engine mount and get an MoT before Wheels Day!
