Whats your oil temp?

So I finally ordered a nuc billet oil filter cover for my oil temps. Got it hooked up and ready to check my delta and my water temp sending unit crapped on me. I broke the wires out of it lol. So I haven't got around to putting the new unit in yet but I have been watching my oil temps. It was a little over 90 yesterday and the highest it got was 223. After about 10 strait minutes on the interstate it hovered around that temp. Does that seem a bit high. I wasn't sure what you guys where seeing in 90 plus temps.

Well I don't know what my coolants running at this very moment. I haven't had time to put the new sending unit to my gauge in because it's always hot. Will get to it prb sat morning. It broke before it got hot so I'm not sure . I'm just curious to see what others are seeing on their oil temps with this hot weather

223 seems really high. I just don't see my coolant getting much over 200. We will find out saturday! I'm gonna pull the wrenches out and set up shop in the driveway soon for a egr delete and new oil cooler, maybe even lift the heads while I'm at it. I have access to another vehicle so I can take my time and with some help from the org hopefully it we be a success lol

I have oil temp reading in the NUC oil cap with an autometer gauge and reading the factory oil sensor with DashBoss. The difference between the two locations is 5*, being the NUC cap/autometer reading is lower. The lower reading could just be the sensor/gauge isn't that accurate.

I just put in a new oil cooler last month, my ECT/EOT delta is only a 3-5* delta. Usually 190* ECT and EOT at 193-195* with the DashBoss.


My Autometer ECT sensor is located in the thermostat housing and the DashBoss is reading the OEM sensor. The Autometer is also 5* lower than the DashBoss/OEM sensor.

It was 110 here in Gilbert,AZ yesterday (112 today) and I saw ECT 204 & EOT 210 on the San Tan freeway.

(No load and my drive is about a 45 minute commute)

Only time I see the low 220s on EOT is when I'm hauling a heavy load (e.g. 5er). Otherwise, ECTs for me are in the 190s and the EOTs are within 8ish degrees. But even when hauling our heavy loads, the deltas are always within 12 to 14 degrees so I'm happy.

I using the nuc with glowshift gauges. My ect sending unit is in the block, drivers side.

Tonight on my way home from work it's mod 70s and my oil hovered a little over 190??? I know it's cooler but dang that's a huge difference . I know for sure my coolant tonight would have been running about 186 to 190. But during the day in the heat I'm not sure what it's doing? I just don't get it. The test is at 65 mph correct. I'm scared to know the delta during the day but tonight I'm almost positive it would have been 5 apart?
