    i know that I have seen a thread but could not find it...What oil temperature is everyone seeing during track days in your GT350/GT350R. I’ve had mine go north of 280! Done laps in 5th just to cool off.
    Has anyone tried a different oil cooler? If anyone else has experienced high oil temps what did you do to rectify the problem?

    Reduced revs on track for a lap will bring them down. Outside of that, adding another oil cooler in series is the only real way to bring it down. 280 is not terrible using modern PAO 4 grade synthetic oils and changing every 4 hours on track.

    Mine also ran in the 280's but i was more concerned about the diff temp running close to that. IMO the diff cooler needs a fan to draw air through it. I don't think the NACA ducts draw much air off of the bottom of the car.

    My car sees 270 most of the time, until I really lean on it.

    I short shift this car (7500) until I need the RPM though.
