Tim,
I also tried the oil cooler upgrade with similar results. But using the exit air firewall ramp that Sonny described in earlier posts has had a significant effect. Here are some data form my AFS EFIS for two fairly similar flights at near full power on a hot day. I saw decreased oil temperature, increased TAS and decreased CHT. The beneficial effects have been consitent over every operating range.
