Oil Temps

Interest in what other people oil temps are? Normal driving and track.
I have a 182 turbo with a 19 row oil cooler and the oil temp sensor in the sump plug. Im getting around 120-130c on track. Which i think is a little high but ive nothing to compare it to.

I got to 124°c on an evening session at Donington the other week.

Motorway driving it sees 90-93°c.

Mine is in the sandwich plate so it's seeing the operating temperature.

Yours might be heat soaking in the sump?

Im getting about 100c on the motorway cruising at 60.

I was thinking that, do you think with it being in the sump it could be reading high?

Not sure tbh just a theory.

Yours will run hotter than mine with it being turbo'd, but I would think a 19 row cooler should take care of that, decent sized cooler really.
