My oil temps never went over 250 and although i couldnt monitor coolant temps I can say that I did not have a single malfunction light the entire day.

Excellent! I love that car. Drove a modified 1M last weekend and was thoroughly impressed.

Benefits of the 1M over the 335 are: MT, additional radiator, proper ducting to the oil cooler and additional radiator.

As you get faster, you might want to look into distilled water and possibly a larger capacity oil cooler. This isn't definite, just a maybe.

Great thing is the only mod would be the larger oil cooler and that would only be the core and maybe a little fender lining trimming.
