I think that oil temp is a weak link in the Camaros, including the 1LE. 290 is too high, 300 is dangerous. I was running 290 after only 3 laps on a cool day with my modded engine. I replaced the 1LE's tiny oil cooler with two air to oil coolers to the left and right of the radiator, along with custom shrouding. Now it runs very cool even on a hot day, and coolant too.

I don't know what Chevy was thinking on oil temps, the Z06 is even worse.
