Anything over 290 is way too hot... you need an oil cooler.

Have ya met Steve, Jeff? All you have to do is ask. He has been my drag racing "Yoda Jedi Master". I ask him all kinds of questions, and he either gives me the answers, or points me in the right so I can try to figure out the answer on my own....he sometimes even speaks in cryptic tongues like Yoda.

I already told Steve that once I get Dragging down to the point where I want to be and am 320% in tune with what the car is telling me during acceleration and braking, then we will be moving on to road work.

Hehe, do you know how many times I have thought about doing an engine swap and stealing the Duramax <6.6 Ltr turbo diesel> out of my father's truck.

I am hoping to bug the sizz out of him next year for tips, don't tell him, I want it to be a surprise.

Joe, for the record, you are talking about drag racing correct? I don't know if Steve would help you with the other dragging.

I am a vast well or useless knowledge and Trivia.

Like when the two iron clad ships battled (you know the bridge Monitor Merrimack Memorial bridge tunnel), one of the ships had been damaged and rebuilt and was no longer going under the name (which one, I forget at the moment )

edit: at the time of the battle, the Merrimack was named CSS Virginia

BTW, "DRAG racing" is rather humorous...usually done at night clubs, two guys volunteer to ride tricycles back and forth across the dance floor and at each stop, they have to get up and dress in a drag article, (usually a dress, wig, and shoes), then the first person to cross the finish line wins.

Doesn't change how thin the oil gets at that temp. Any clue what your WOT oil pressure was when you were running 300+. Sure M1 says it doesn't breakdown until 400, but an oil temp sensor reading of 320 means some localized temps can be higher. With a stock tune GM sets the car to go into limp mode at > 320.

I went a few years w/o an oil cooler in my car... getting one was great. No more need to think about oil temp. Never got over 270 in the hotest weather.

$600 oil cooler kit < new motor

Either you have spent to much time on Google to learn this information or you don't drink enough to kill those brain cells.

I don't drink too much so that when people do get drunk and do stupid embarrassing things, I am still sober and can in detail remember and tell the stories of what others did.

I am the opposite, I tend to drink to much and do stupid things.
