Indeed, which is why I upgraded my oil cooler core. The thinking is that if 297 was OK for the oil, 270 should be pretty safe. Please also note the flash temp of sample (which is admittedly more...

My pleasure. Mobil1 is actually a pretty decent oil. Now that my oil cooler setup is much more stout, I expect that the oil will last quite long.
