Appreciate the recommendation.

Question for you... as a tuner, can you see any possible way that the tune could be causing the high temps?

Basically 3 things changed and the car almost immediately started having high oil temp issues.
1) Stock header to Killer B
2) SPT intake to Grimmspeed intake
3) Tune

Coincidences happen... but it just seems strange. I feel like I've ruled out radiant heat from the header, the intake should be providing cooler air than before... so that leaves the tune.
