My Gt 3.2 regularly runs with an indicated oil temperature of 100 degrees centigrade. This seems a bit high to me unless the driving has been "spirited" for a while. I can achieve this temperature just during cruise speed on A roads. It creeps up from 60- 80 after about 20 minutes and once it reaches 100 it tends to stay there.
What temperature do you get?
As we are (mostly) using the recommended 10W-60 Selenia oil, which has a high viscosity at high temperture, I presume this is ok?
I am due to track the car shortly and I wonder what temperture it will reach with more sustained high speed use? Say 4 hot laps with a 20 minute cool down in between?
