Default My final oil temp numbers are in!!!

After several weeks of testing I have managed to get my oil temp to consistantly stay somewhere north of 4500 Kelvin at WOT. I have a oil cooler, but I am afraid it may be working too well as we could not get to the magical number of 5000 Kelvin. Can anyone tell from these pics what my problem might be?

Ok I will bite into the joke. 4500 K is about 3500 degrees F?
But are the photos a joke also? Who would rig the oil cooler like that?

?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ??

373.15* Kelvin= 100* Celsius= 212* Farenheit

I'm thinking he had some high oil temps and is being a little sarcastic in the initial post.

When you are attempting a world record of any type - be it a kilo run, vee bottom speed record, or highest recorded oil temp in a marine motor, you have to be creative in your engineering!

It would be funny if it were not true! The thought process it took to put that conglomeration of fittings together to get the size down from 1" to 1/4" was true feat of "(insert racial epitaph here) Engineering".
