I had installed a oil temp gauge on one of previous cars that had been modified (maxed pump, super 60 turbo,etc) I didn't have an oil cooler on it, but wanted to know the temp of my oil, I had a suspicion it was getting hot. On one long trip going 80 mph or so I saw the temps reach 270 plus degrees. That's way too hot, I would like to see temps stay below 220.

Your temp of 125 with a stock engine and oil cooler is too hot. How is the airflow on the cooler?
