I have auxiliary oil coolers and my car hardly ever gets over 180 degrees. Is this really a problem then for moisture? First I ever heard of this.

Is there any other way to keep the moisture out of the oil besides heat?

And where would the moisture disappear to anyway when you heat your oil to 212 degrees? I thought it was a 'closed' system?
Even though your temperatures are at 180, it doesn't mean that it's consistent through out the system. **** the pistons for a 930 on the low side probably get up to 300 degrees, so those oil squirters on the webs squirt oil on the pistons that i'm sure gets hotter than that.
