"Oil temp is running about 150-160 at present with almost a direct flow into the oil cooler. There is only about 1/2 to 1 inch of space between the fluted hole in the cowling and the oil cooler inlet."

"Switched back to 15W-50 yesterday and added a ground from the MGL gauges to the engine block (reference ground). On idle I had a constant 65 psi. Will fly in the next few days to see if this has resolved the issue."

"Greg,
