Yeah, been hot here. I've also a Dinan pulley so i think that may contribute to slightly higher temps?

Randy-my temp gauge much like yours but it seems to get even hotter when going up hill accelerating under load, then drops a little but I haven't seen it below 210 just crusing around.

I have a Dinan 13% underdrive pulley as well. Not sure how much that would contribute to higher temps though.

I would expect the temps to get hotter when going uphill and accelerating. Seems perfectly normal since you're stressing the engine. I don't think you have anything to worry about, Bill

Yes, a pulley will def. increase oil temps.. I saw this first hand on my friends car when he added his RPI pulley..This is because every accessory driven by the crankshaft will now be under driven, is worked less, i.e. water pump, which will increase water and oil temps..

In general my gauge will read on 210 or a lil over even when i was 100% stock, i considered that normal anyways.
With the intakes, i havent seen any difference at all in oil temps, which is to be expected.

Yea, sounds like you are under the operating temperature as listed in the owners manual, so you are good! Dealers need more enthusiast working there, things would be so much better as one enthusiast can teach a whole staff few things! 80% of the techs i have met have been horrible, and all they know is what the computer tells them to do. (BMW tools and repair manuals)

i second that! Thanks to the OP for his outstanding work!!

i wonder how many of us are now enjoying these intakes-they definitively add a lot for a relatively inexpensive add-on that is cost effective. Think about what some pay for aftermarket mufflers for just the sound with no actual performance increase. My car absolutely barks on downshifts and roars under acceleration without the $3,000 mufflers.
