Ever wondered just how effective a center cooler really is?

Well, I guess I found out. I was working on my 965 bumper install when I noticed that the fins of my Carrera cooler was a wee bit clogged. About 50% of the surface area of the cooler is flat out gummed up with oil that leaked out the top and mixed with dirt. Judging by the amount of sludge and the compaction, it's been there a while. So I've been tracking the car with the front cooler doing all of the work! I was seeing ~220-225 on the track during the summer.
