It might show smth, but 105 vs 10C is a huge difference, that's why you see your pressure ok in the morning.

I think rear plate is super important bc it pumps coolant into the heads!
And if it has same exact crappy profile gasket as valley pan, so why wouldn't it fail??
Well I am shutting the car off at 105c so it's taking many hours to cool down that I would think it could be loosing pressure in.. but to solve that we just test it at operating temp.
