Well, we have differing opinions on what it too hot, then. The just above the sort-of-middle hash mark is about 220 degrees (perfect) and the last hash mark prior to the red is 250(getting on the warm side, but keep in mind that OEM front, oil cooler fan does not even trigger until 248) . . . so I will see temps reach 250-260 on 100+ days, in stop and go traffic, and with the a/c on max, but am not too concerned as those are not critically high temps (especially when not the everyday, normal temps).

That being said, I do plan to increase oil cooling capabilities at some point (and move the f*ck out of the pressure cooker hell hole, too ).
