Hey guys, we took the baja out for a trip last weekend and I recently hooked up the temp gauge. I have the sender stabbed in through one of the oil ports on the motor ,"right next to the pulley on the passenger side". I also have an oil cooler mounted on the rack on top of my roof, but it's not a fan cooled unit. I'm wondering what normal is for oil temps in these things on an 80 degree day? I went on Samba, and they were saying anything to 300 degrees is normal, but exceeding that is too much. Here, I've seen way lower at 180? So what should I be running? 1600 Dual port, dual kads.

The most I have seen on my turbo 2332 w/doghouse is 210* and that's here in phx. Granted I have a baja so no engine lid to keep air from flowing.

I just took my Baja for a ride and saw 220. Outside air temp here in NW Arkansas is 97 right now.
