That's what she said?

Jokes aside, it sounds like you are prioritizing the oil pressure which makes sense but don't forget to look at ducting to improve the efficiency of both your rad and oil cooler (you do have an oil cooler, right?) It is absolutely crazy how much of an impact some low tech and low dollar efforts to properly seal around these coolers to force air through them can be helpful.

I agree. I have factory sized coolers and use the factory ducts. The oil cooling thread has pics and a discussion of my doing the driver's side with the ppk water cooler as a second oil cooler.

Just a quick note - I removed the A/C system (condenser, compressor, lines) and that dramatically lowered coolant and oil temperatures. Was seeing 290 degree oil and 239 coolant temp. Now I'm seeing peaks of 265 oil temp and 219 coolant. As soon as you start a cool down lap <10 seconds - coolant will drop to 190. I'm using the CSF radiator and an parallel oil cooler with the factory one.
