That is what I thought as well.

However, without the upgraded stock oil cooler (in addition to the ar design oil cooler), the oil temperatures were rising well beyond 135 degrees Celsius when I drove faster than 240 km/h for more than 20 seconds. When approaching 300 km/h, the oil temp was almost at 140 degrees, which made me upgrade the stock oil cooler.
