What are your oil temperatures?
 
Hey everyone

I've been wondering what oil temperatures everyone is getting?

The reason I ask is to try to figure out if my oil temp gauge is off , and to choose the right oil grade/weight.

I have a 12 bar oil cooler so expect it to be low but if the temps are below 90*C will I need to use a 10w-50 or 15w-50? Would a 10w-40 or the like not be better...?

I've added a poll for anyones future reference.

Cheers

Depends on the outside temp too.

Voted based on road driving, but

I can see 90 on track on zero degrees, or 120 on a hot summers day

I briefly debated this with RB motorsport as I was also thinking that for the vast majority of the time, my temps were below 80deg. In the end however I bowed to their knowledge and continued to use 15W-50 racing synthentic and I think most other estbalished tuners will use a similar grade for turbo seal leakage reasons.

I never use more than half revs, half throttle until the temp is over 70deg.

On the track I saw a peak of about 110deg after 4 laps of 5K-8k revs, I have a 19 row mocal cooler.

my vote comes from Africa where ambient temps are around 24-38C

Hardly see above 85 on the road given it a a little stick.

running R32GTR and HKS Type R Oil cooler kit and relocation. normal cruise just above 70C but on the pedal i will go op just a little :) Btw also run Truust Greddy sump so have som more oil then Stock

Around town normal driving with an oil cooler, I see around, between 80 and 90, when booting it, it'll go up to 110.

ShanGTR3318 20th July 2012 05:10 AM

Approx 80deg on my 33gtr on touge

Mine hovers around 80 (got a Mocal oil cooler) even booting it a bit it doesn't go above 85-90, only seen 90+ after a long cruise on the Autobahn at about 80-90mph, and then stopping for fuel / piss / coffee and the engine not running to circulate the oil.

Oil cooler , plus trust ex sump normal driving 70, when driving hard up to 80-90.

roading driving - 75ish
20lap race - 98-100ish

19row 230mm wide cooler, thermo plate, 8l sump

nazams 21st July 2012 06:10 PM

Oil temp Arnt they all different depending on what sort of engine or mods you have??

..and that is why you need an oil cooler.

on the track i see up too 135 degrees. talked to a lot of people about this varied opinions on whether this is too high. i use very good oil a 13row cooler and big radiator but water temp will still hit 110 and oil 135 on ten lap session on 1 bar boost with standard turbos.

I have similar issues as you are. My R34 GTR hit 127C after only a couple laps on the track. I lived in Indonesia where temp is around 30-34C. Car is on stock turbos on 1 bar boost as well. car also has no oil cooler or upgraded radiator. My mechanic told me to install dual oil cooler, is it necessary?

Easier to fit one larger one.

Little Nismo 27th August 2012 06:31 AM

Intersting i had not thought of dual coolers but it makes sense i guess. I will ask mine and see what he reakons.

Little Nismo 27th August 2012 06:35 AM

There is a maximum size you can run before the oil pump starts to struggle though i think ie a 19row cooler is a bit bit for a standard oil pump. Of course i would think that 2 9row coolers woudl be at least as restrictive.

Yes, I was told to use dual Greddy coolers, especially because it comes with the oil relocation kit.

Anybody ever compared the Greddy with Mocal? I heard about them before, but never buy their products.

BigKriss 14th September 2012 08:07 PM

Running two coolers, would that be in series or parallel ?

Series coolers would i.m.o. be rather restrictive with an accompanied pressure loss ?
Interesting to see what others are getting temp wise..I am in Africa where summer stinks and oil temps go crazy..I am using a 19 row Setrab and Setrab thermostatic adapter....track time temps around 110deg C.
