With meth Oil temp stays around 265ish.

Take it from someone who has had one, the AR cooler is almost useless. If you haven't read the sticky on Limp mode party at the track you should.

Here's the solution anyone tracking as much as you should have:
  • Evolution Racewerks Competition or Stett dual oil coolers
  • Aftermarket radiator w/higher capacity if you can find one
  • Distilled water with MOCOOL

You already have the other stuff.

Our cars suffer from horrid cooling and the coolant water is ignored when it should be a focus. That's why the distilled water and a big radiator if you can find one.

The hood will help too.
