Your coolent will come up faster due to the fact that you have a thermostat. That is what a thermostat does, it holds the water in the block till you reach your normal opperating temps. then it opens for cooling flow and that is ALL it does. The engine oil will run warmer at normal opperating conditions then water. The oil cooler is cooling oil with the coolent water curculating threw the oil cooler. If you start to see a significant diff. between with no obvious explanation ''ie... steep climbs pulling a load ect....'' for long periods of time then ''Houston you have a problem'' simple really, If your coolent temp. holds good but your oil runs warmer in excess of 12 degrees are more then you need to replace your oil cooler being that this is the only cooling device in your engine oil cooling system. If they both are abnormaly high, then I would look into the water cooling system, pump psi....water level.....puken....ect.....
I need a beer! As far as monitering these temps go, I say go with the mechanical ones that point........LOL
