The new cap (-04 is the latest) should hold pressure better (assuming no other system issues), which would raise the boiling point of the system and nothing more.

You should also be aware that the dash display is notoriously inaccurate and nonlinear, so “splitting hairs” over where the needle sits is a waste of time. You should look at the dash gauge as telling that the car is either “hot” or “not hot”, and nothing more…..
