I'm surprised it got so high with the limited boost you're allowed to run. I'm not getting over 140 on a warm summers day at QR - which is more of a full throttle track, running 16psi. Mind you I suspect you hold it at full throttle a little longer than I before hitting the brakes... Even at just 140 I've upgraded my my cooler to a much bigger one. Ran 130 deg at QR a few months ago with similar ambient to you. Interested to know what temps you run at QR this weekend. Good luck!
