Just curious what average cruising Engine Oil and Trans Temps you guys are seeing?
I have a 14 SRT8 with extended warranty and eventually would like to find a low mileage TH, but that’s a few years down the road. (Or depending on cost and if I decide to keep it, possibly do a twin turbo build with my 14)
But as of now, I would like to lower my Engine Oil and Trans Temp slightly. I see B&M has a larger capacity Trans Pan and after my warranty expires I might install an addition Trans Cooler. Also, after warranty possibly add a Low Temp Thermostst, but then I know the fans are supposed to be reprogrammed to kick on at a lower Temp, but I don’t want my cooling fans to continually run all summer long.
When I had my ZR1 I know a few guys on the forum recommended drilling a couple small holes in the Thermostat housing, but I won’t be doing that with this vehicle.
Do you know what Temp Thermostat is in the TH?

(On a side note; Do you guys notice that every guy whether they’re in a pinto, escort or rusted out pick-up to every Porsche or Vette they all rev their engines thinking your race them or nail it on a 30mph road? I get it constantly in my 14 and can only imagine how often you guys get it in your TH)

Surprised TH isn’t offered in Dark Tank Leather package.
Nice contrast with my Blk 14, get many compliments on it. Was also sharp with my hunter green Vette.

Also interested in what Oil Temps you guys are seeing if I decided to upgrade to a low mileage TH in a year or 2.
Also any other issues you guys might be noticing with the new TH?
Truly Appreciate a few responses.

80 some views and no replies. Maybe TH owners don’t check Temps?
I would think many former SRT8 owners are now or planning on becoming TH owners, including myself.
It is what it is.

That's my motto, always own within warranty and don't worry much about it.
Went through my fair share of cars out of warranty and its no fun.

Mine:
Outside temp+ 7-11 deg = intercooler temp
IC temp + 30 - 45 = intake air temp.
Intake air temp is that after the intercooler, not intake to supercharger.
At an idle, IC temp rises.
During running, IC temp runs about 7-9 deg more than ambient temp.
