The oil can cope with the higher temps and maybe some engines don't lose  
power.  I only know that my dyno guy who does a lot of Minis and Spridgets  
me about the oil temp related power drop.  He races a Mini and still  wins 
even though he is about 68 years old.

I have a 16 row cooler with a thermostat on my road car.
