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.
What does David Anton at APT say??
I have a 16 row cooler with a thermostat on my road car.

I was told 200-230F is ideal with Redline synthetic, but I'll check
Stapleton's book. I have the 13 row cooler.
