Also, just out of curiosity, have you had an oil analysis done?
Funny enough, the 1st cooler was a Mocal 25 row cooler. Temps seemed similar to the Mishimoto. Unfortunately due to a shop's poor choices on the install that cooler is now fairly worthless.

Still... a 25 row cooler, even if not very efficient, seems like it shouldn't be fighting to keep up with a stock turbo, stock motor car...

I actually just took an oil sample to send to Blackstone earlier tonight.
