All that being said, I'm interested in an oil cooler upgrade. However, some of the info available on this forum sugggests that road course limps may have actually been due to coolant temps. I'm thinking that people more readily blame it on the oil temps because that's what they can see.

In this case, upgrading the oil cooler may be attacking the problem indirectly.
Same here dude, full power, 6MT, 100+ ambients. Oil temps hovered around 290+. I don't like operating that close to limp mode.
