I figured I'd update this thread after taking the car to the track 2 weeks ago. I decided to go with the Schaeffer's 5W-50 S9000 oil. The car ran great during the track day and the only problem we had was not related to the engine getting too hot.
The highest temperature we saw on the gauge 148 F this was on a cool fall day was in the low 50s and ended up raining after the 2nd session, so that probably helped to keep the temperatures down a little bit. I still don't see there being a huge increase in temps during the summer months and as long as they don't get over 220 F I don't see a reason to slow down or pull of the track and head back to the pits.

I can update this again next summer if anyone is interested.

You sure the oil temps were only 148F? That number sounds VERY low for any fully warmed up engine, even under easy street use. Does your engine have an OEM thermostat? What temp does it open at?

Thanks,

To my knowledge it should be the factory thermostat installed in the engine, but I can't say that 100% certainty. It's reading off of an aftermarket relocation kit, so that is probably part of the reason why it's reading so low imo.

I'll have to keep an eye on it and see what happens when things get warmer next year.

148F is 64c. So this is not correct.

Both my old PD and CR natural oil temperature would be around 95c. Which is over 200F.

The max temp I run to is 125c / 257F and even with an oil cooler I can hit that quite quickly.

I was thinking it's probably reading 148C, which is ~ +300F? Of course that would be VERY high for an equilibrium sump temp.

Possibly. At those temps I suspect the water temperature would be very high too.

I am starting to find the stock limits with my coolant temperature hovering around 102-103 on trackdays even with oil cooler. A better radiator I think is needed.
